Accelerate Solutions

The Sustainable Ocean Alliance (SOA) is a global organization that advances the impact of start-ups, social enterprises and youth-centered initiatives that are developing solutions to protect and sustain our ocean. SOA’s pipeline of ocean leaders, ages 16-35, is cultivated through a chapter-based model, led by students at the high school and college levels, as well as by young professionals.


 

Our Strategy

SOA has the largest ocean youth network in the world, with members in 50 countries. SOA builds a global coalition of ocean champions to tackle ambitious sustainability initiatives for the betterment of our troubled seas.

Build A Global Youth Network

SOA’s mission is reinforced through our national and international high school, university, and young professional chapters. Our goal is to have 200 global chapters by 2018, each focused on developing advocacy campaigns targeting local elected officials, hosting community-centered impact events, and raising awareness about the common responsibility to protect our ocean.

Provide Leadership Opportunities

We give youth access to high-level conversation and a platform to showcase their ideas and solutions that can protect our ocean. We foster the entrepreneurial spirit of our members and challenge them to design creative policy and business solutions. SOA currently supports over 160 youth-led sustainability projects around the globe.
