2021 World Ocean Day Events

Happy World Ocean Day!

Activating youth is key to building a durable conservation movement that can move with the speed and audacity needed to transform the future. So, whether you are already an active part of the EarthEcho Youth Action Network, or are simply looking for ways to celebrate World Ocean Day, we’ve put together some options for you to get involved:

Hosted by EarthEcho:

  • Tune in to the OurEcho Challenge Final Event (on Jacques-Yves Cousteau’s birthday) June 11 at 12:00 PM (ET) to watch teams of students present their ideas to help preserve, protect or repair natural resources found in their own backyards for the chance to win $5,000. This year we’ve added the “People’s Choice Award” so you can vote for YOUR favorite team during the event.
  • Journey with us on ocean-themed EarthEcho Expeditions like What’s the Catch?

Hosted by friends, featuring EarthEcho:

If you are between the ages of 13 - 24 and still want to do more, be sure to join the EarthEcho Youth Action Network to learn about how you can join your peers from around the world to lead education and outreach events on marine protected areas (MPAs); plan and direct youth-driven coastal habitat restorations; and drive policy/advocacy actions around the intersection of ocean and climate issues.

However you celebrate World Ocean Day, THANK YOU for appreciating this big blue planet we call home.
