OceanEcho 30x30 Fellows

OceanEcho 30x30 is an initiative led by EarthEcho’s youth leaders focused on amplifying the impact of youth-led action to support efforts to protect 30% of the global ocean by 2030 (30x30) through the creation of marine protected areas.

The 2022 OceanEcho 30x30 Fellowship will equip six youth leaders ages 18-23 with funds and training to design and execute campaigns mobilizing communities to help advance ocean protections and achieve the goal of protecting 30% of America’s waters by 2030 (30x30).

Kicking off the second year of the program, EarthEcho is partnering with the National Ocean Protection Coalition (NOPC) to offer this unique opportunity for youth leaders to play an active role in achieving the 30x30 ocean goal. The 2022 Fellows will receive campaign planning guidance and training from EarthEcho International and mentorship from partners representing the Aleut Community of St. Paul Island, Friends of the Mariana Trench, the Northern Chumash Tribal Council, the Pacific Remote Islands Coalition, and the Surfrider Foundation.

The 2022 OceanEcho 30x30 Fellowship builds on the successful launch of the program in 2021 where 10 youth Fellows launched a diverse series of initiatives to build global support for the 30x30 ocean goal in eight countries. Meet our 2022 Fellows below!
