The #Youth4Ocean Forum first call for project submission
The #Youth4Ocean Forum is launching its first call for project submission
Do you have a project in mind to raise awareness of consumers on sustainable seafood? Do you already organise workshops with children to teach them about the ocean and marine resources? Or are you a young entrepreneur with an innovative business plan to use marine resources sustainably? Or something completely different and unexpected that you think has the potential to change things?
Then the call is for you!
The Youth4Ocean Forum welcomes applications from anyone involved or interested in marine education, fishing, aquaculture, the blue economy and the sustainable use of marine resources for economic growth, improved livelihoods, and jobs while preserving the health of marine ecosystems.
The ocean has always provided us with plentiful resources, and many populations around the world depend on it for food and livelihood. While these resources are under an increasing amount of stress, it seems also possible to solve present and future social challenges such as food security and job opportunities by using marine resources sustainably.
Answer the call for projects!
The deadline for submission is January 15, 2021.
If your project is successful, you will be accredited as Young Ocean Advocate and you will enjoy a new range of benefits and support for your project.
The application page is only accessible once the candidate has registered on the Commission’s website and must be connected to his/her profile.
