OUR OCEAN YOUTH LEADERSHIP SUMMIT PROGRAM

Our Ocean, Our Legacy will be the theme of this year's Our Ocean Conference, as it reflects our choices and actions to maintain the sustainability of our oceans' resources and to preserve our ocean's health, as a heritage presented for our children and grandchildren. As an integral part of the Our Ocean Conference, the Government of the Republic of Indonesia and the Sustainable Ocean Alliance are co-hosting the third Our Ocean Youth Leadership Summit, which will take place on October 29th-30th, 2018. The youth summit will align with the main conference theme and feature ocean solutions in one of the following areas: marine protected areas, climate change, sustainable fisheries, marine pollution, sustainable blue economy, and maritime security

Initiated by U.S Secretary John Kerry and Sustainable Ocean Alliance in 2016, the youth summit is an opportunity to showcase youth-led ocean solutions and entrepreneurial innovations, and to create a networking opportunity for youth to engage with leaders in policy, industry, research, government initiatives, ocean conservation, and NGOs.

This year we’ve sourced the world’s top 200 ocean commitments created by youth leaders of ages 18-35 from over 53 countries, and designed an agenda that offers a high-level of interaction to foster collaboration, boost ocean youth leaders’ career development and inspire future generations to take action.

This is a draft program for the conference. All topics and speakers are indicative and subject to change.
