The philosophy behind the I live by the Sea Contest is to create a platform which enables exchange of information for all people interested in the ocean. We strive to create an international society, whose members believe in the need to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with special emphasis on marine issues. We hope that our contest unites international youth who mutually learn about various aspects of marine environments, from social to natural issues. We think, that the opportunity to contact people from various parts of the world is a great value in itself. Therefore, taking part in the contest with a chance that his/her work will be presented in various world places, during important events dedicated to the oceans, we help to promote their own perception of the reality and their regions. We want all of them to feel like we are helping to change the world for the better, even just a little bit, and thus the participation in this endeavor is an “award” in itself for all of us!
