Collaborative Youth Leadership for Our Blue Planet

Young people are not only the leaders of tomorrow, but also today! And supporting youth leadership and advocacy in collaboration with youth-led and youth-serving organizations is a top priority of The Ocean Project. We are committed to inclusivity and providing opportunities for all, radically collaborating with others around the world to grow a movement for a more equitable and sustainable society and a healthy ocean that we all need to survive and thrive, no matter where we live. 

We have intentionally worked behind-the-scenes since 2009 (based on comprehensive research we undertook that underscores the importance of engaging younger generations and diverse communities in conservation) to support young people and youth-serving organizations to collaboratively grow a broad, diverse, active, and united youth constituency for our blue planet

To help connect young people and youth organizations, and collectively grow a diverse global youth movement for our shared ocean and climate, we created a monthly email, Rising Blue Network Newsletter. You can see past issues here.
