The Ocean, what unites the Youth: a 2022 UNOC Side Event


SOA Blog

Sustainable Ocean Alliance is accelerating ocean solutions around the world. Here are their stories.

Register here to attend this event on Zoom.


Youth around the world—each representing different organizations and networks—have all gathered to create a guide for decision makers, civil society, academia and the private sector around protecting our ocean.

As an official side event of the 2022 United Nations Ocean Conference, this webinar will explore this new guide with representatives of different organizations that were part of the creation of an "Ocean Youth Statement":

“As a collective and global youth movement , we want to launch and share our Statement in order to declare the state of emergency of our Ocean's Health and to engage Youth from different parts of the world to raise their voices with us and to invite all society to change behavior towards our Ocean."
