Welcome to the YouthToSea Community!

At YouthToSea, we endeavor to unite youth with one common goal: to protect and conserve our oceans. Our mission is to coach youth (15-18) and provide them with opportunities to develop their problem-solving, critical-thinking, and communication skills. At the end of our program, youth are equipped with skills, tools, and strategies to be active decision-makers in their local, regional, and national communities. 

Youth engage with their local community through learning journeys and ocean service projects

    Hackathon Alert: The Climate Change-Makers Challenge

    Posted by Jacob Beland on February 10th, 2021


    Hi folks, 

    Please take a look at below and consider participating in the opportunity presented by Ocean Bridge participants. It looks like there will be more details to come and there is $4,000.00+ to be won in prizes:

    The Logistics:

    "There's still details to be worked out, which we anticipate should be finalized by February 10. But in brief, you will have Friday to Sunday evening to work on original ideas (not submitted to past hackathons or developed at a significant level in other places) that can make a difference to our climate crisis. We will recommend teams of four, which can come pre-formed or which can also be developed before the hackathon, with a Slack channel TBA to help with matching.

    During the hackathon, at least one team member will be expected to join two workshops during the course of the event (on the business model canvas & pitching), in addition to the very first intro session and at least one session with a mentor that you will need to book. A more detailed schedule with further logistics should be available by February 10.

    A final note that the submission itself with be a four-minute video, with finalists then being invited to present their solutions live at the Ocean Bridge National Conference on March 6-7 (details TBA)."

    If you have questions about the opportunity, please email [email protected] or visit https://climatechangemakers.de....

    Cheers,
