Know a young leader who is passionate about ocean conservation? The World Oceans Day organisation is now accepting applications to join their Youth Advisory Council. They are searching for 10 young ocean leaders from around the world to bring the Council to a grand total of 25 members. Applicants should be between the ages of 16 and 22, able to make a two-year commitment, and have a passion for ocean conservation! Applications are due by 11 August 2019.
The World Oceans Day Youth Advisory Council was created in 2016 to help unite youth around the world for a better future with a healthier ocean that sustains us all, no matter where we live. To do so, the Council uses World Oceans Day to rally the world on and around 8 June and provides opportunities for continued engagement and action year-round.
The Council works closely with The Ocean Project and its global network to help shape the development of World Oceans Day and expand its reach and impact throughout the year. Council members provide new and unique perspectives, ideas, and recommendations for innovative and effective engagement strategies for youth around the world. Council members also lead efforts that inspire and support youth advocacy initiatives TO protect and restore our shared ocean.
Please forward this information to someone you think would be interested in applying to join the World Oceans Day Youth Advisory Council.
