The World Oceans Day Youth Advisory Council is expanding for 2018 by adding 10 new young ocean leaders from around the world! Applications are due by 1 December 2017.
The World Oceans Day Youth Advisory Council helps to expand the reach and impact of World Oceans Day, on 8 June, and year-round. Council members are instrumental in helping shape the development of World Oceans Day as it grows, providing new and unique perspectives, ideas, and recommendations. Launched in 2016, the inaugural Council had 11 members. For 2018, we will double the size of the Council seek out youth in a wider range of countries.
To apply you must be between the ages of 16 and 22, able to make at least a two-year commitment, including approximately 5-10 hours per month to Council activities and have a passion for the ocean! Read the Youth Advisory Council Handbook for more information about the Council and requirements.
