One Ocean Young Challenge 2022

The One Ocean Young Challenge is open to all students of classes III, IV and V High School. Participation is open to individual candidates, but also to groups of up to 6 students. From all submissions, our jury of expert scientists, artists and journalists will chose a winning work.

Sea and Science


The goal of this year's challenge is to propose a short and easily implementable scientific study that considers "citizen science" as method of data collection. A study that can help in the search for concrete answers to current ocean issues or be a starting point for specific new research.

The winning proposal will be published on One Ocean Foundation's website and social channels and will be carried forward into 2023 with the support of One Ocean Foundation's Scientific Committee and Foundation partners who will help in the process of scientific validation, data acquisition, scientific analysis of what emerged, and to their eventual publication in a scientific journal.

This year's awardee was Federica Gasbarro, biologist, activist, "green influencer" who received the prestigious award precisely for her ability to dialogue with the younger generation by always characterizing her speeches with precise and rigorous scientific information. 

The young winner was joined on stage by Martina Rogato, Laura Basconi and Giorgia Bollati that took part on. Each of the speakers gave testimony of how young women can be actively involved in the dissemination of knowledge on environmental sustainability and answered to the questions made by the students in the public.
