Partnering with Peace Boat
In the lead up to World Oceans Day on June 8, 2019, SOA Program Director, Brandon Levy, served as a guest educator aboard Peace Boat’s 101st Global Voyage and as a mentor for the Ocean and Climate Youth Ambassadors, a group of young leaders from Small Island States in the Caribbean as well as the Pacific and Indian Oceans. During his week-long voyage across the Atlantic Ocean, Brandon hosted workshops and seminars for the youth and the ship's passengers on conscious leadership, systems thinking, emergent strategy, and climate change.
