OceanEcho 30x30: Catch the Wave to Protect the Ocean

February 5, 2021 3:00 PM


EarthEcho International was founded on the belief that young people have the power to change the world. You’re invited to join a conversation with EarthEcho Youth Leadership Council members as they demonstrate how they are taking action to protect the ocean. In 2020, EarthEcho launched #OceanEcho30x30, a campaign to ignite activism in ocean conservation.

During this session, participants will learn why it is important to protect the ocean, how we are all connected, what they can do in their own communities, and gain access to resources that will help them to lead their own conservation efforts.

This session is part of the 2021 National Biodiversity Teach-In, a yearly series of free biodiversity webinars organized by students for students. View the entire NBTI schedule at https://nationalbiodiversityteachin.com/.
