Youth Leadership Summit

August 6-8, 2020

We're going VIRTUAL and YOUth are invited!

EarthEcho International's 5th Annual Youth Leadership Summit will unite hundreds of young people, ages 13-25, from around the world, for three days of learning, networking, and collaboration to build strategies to protect 30% of the ocean by 2030. Leveraging EarthEcho's global network of scientists, policy leaders, influencers, and youth change-makers, this free event will cultivate a community of young people to launch #OceanEcho30x30, amplifying the impact of collective youth-led action to restore and protect our water planet. 

We kick-off the Summit celebrating the finalist teams for the OurEcho Challenge, a STEM innovation competition empowering middle school students to tackle biodiversity challenges in their communities.

Workshops and sessions will be hosted on Zoom during the Eastern Time Zone, and will occur at various times between 9 AM - 7 PM ET. Check out the Event Program for the full schedule and contact Youth Leadership Summit coordinators at with any questions.
