The Youth to Sea Council was created in 2019 by a small group of passionate youth with a shared interest in ocean conservation. Youth to Sea aims to unite youth throughout British Columbia with a common goal: to protect and conserve our oceans. The council will work towards this goal by developing a vibrant network of youth across the province who will protect our shared oceans by engaging their communities through a variety of ocean projects. Our goal is to create a space where youth can connect and support each other as they take action in their own communities to drive ocean conservation efforts.
Youth to Sea members will develop projects to be part of a youth-driven effort to inspire and engage the public in ocean conservation efforts. The council will promote positive environmental change through their own conservation efforts and engagement/educational events. Youth to Sea is designed to give a voice to youth in discussions about ocean conservation and sustainability. Our members will shape the development and direction of the council and develop their own ideas as well as be part of a larger group of environmental leaders.
By partnering with the Ocean Wise, the Youth to Sea Council can provide youth with access to resources and support from professional ocean researchers, conservationists, and educators.
