2021 is coming to an end, and it is time for the Youth4Ocean Forum to reflect on what has happened in this (second) unusual year.
The COVID-19 pandemic continued to disrupt what we had planned but this did not stop us, and in some cases, it also gave us opportunities to speak at events which we wouldn’t have been able to attend if they were not held online.
-> We carried out 113 activities.
-> We gained new members of the Forum, we are now 204.
-> We got the chance to meet 5 inspiring ocean experts in the “Meet a Blue Expert” series:
Angelique Pouponneau, CEO of the Seychelles Conservation and Climate Adaptation Trust
-> We represented the Youth4Ocean Forum and spoke up for Youth at 17 conferences and workshops:
->We also attended the 3 thematic working groups of the EU4Ocean Coalition, which held regular meetings throughout the year.
We look forward to a New Year full of even more ocean preservation activities.
