We, the All-Atlantic Ocean Youth Ambassadors, have launched a booklet series! Bridging the Ocean is a collective of concepts and conversations focussed on the ocean in relation to bringing awareness to the challenges the ocean is facing. Through navigating some of these topics, we hope that this book will expand the ocean community in a way that further opens the dialogue around finding and implementing robust solutions that are geared towards not only restoring the ocean’s health but addressing the inequitable distribution of ocean resources. We want a healthy ocean FOR ALL! We want absolutely everyone to feel included in ocean conservation talks and to feel welcomed to share their unique knowledge and lived experiences with the ocean. We have translated the book into four languages: English, Portuguese, Spanish and French. This was in an effort to make it more accessible, and we hope that in the future, we will translate it into many more languages.
Bridging the Ocean is open source! It’s free! The only ask we have of you, as our community, is that you share it with as many people as possible. It is in a printable format, so when you are called to print a few copies for those in our community who may not have the resources to read it online, please do; and deliver it to them! We are a community and so we must serve one another!
We hope you enjoy the series and would love to hear from you.
Tag us on social media (Instagram: @allatlanticyouth; Twitter: @AtlanticYouth)and let us know how you enjoy it.
We would love to see it reach far and wide, to bring us all a little closer to one another.
