ONE OCEAN YOUNG

We believe in mobilizing young people for the future of our Planet Ocean and we also believe in multidisciplinarity, because to protect the sea we need to work like it: without barriers. For this reason, we have created a challenge where young people become protagonists of change, and where the different school disciplines become keys of reading and interpretation for the conservation of the sea.

To protect the sea we need to act without barriers. This is why we have created a challenge that makes young people the protagonists of change.
