EarthEcho International is currently accepting applications for the following:

2022 OceanEcho 30x30 Fellowship

The future sustainability of life on earth and the health of our planet is inextricably linked to the health of our ocean. Global concern regarding environmental degradation and anthropogenic impacts on marine ecosystems has led to urgent calls for countries to meaningfully protect at least 30% of the ocean by 2030 (30x30) to preserve what remains of ocean biodiversity and restore the ocean to abundance. Activating and engaging youth is key to building a durable conservation movement that can move with the speed and audacity needed to transform the future, and EarthEcho International is at the forefront of that work supporting 30x30. In 2020 EarthEcho International’s Youth Leadership Council launched OceanEcho 30x30 – an initiative to amplify the collective impact of youth-led action to support the 30x30 goal through education and outreach efforts, active engagement in ocean policy/advocacy, and direct marine restoration efforts.

EarthEcho International is mobilizing five OceanEcho Fellows in strategic locations across the United States to activate their peers to work with community leaders and government agencies in support of advancing new, expanded, or enhanced MPAs and achieving the 30x30 goal in the U.S. EarthEcho is currently seeking applications for Fellows (ages 17-25) from the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, Alaska, American Samoa/Guam/Hawaii, and California, who will ideally reside in their home state or territory for the entirety of the Fellowship.

Applications are due September 28, 2022 (updated deadline). Use the links below to view the full OceanEcho 30x30 Fellowship role description and application instructions for each region.
