Eurocean’s Youth: the first network that connects young Europeans to the maritime world
“Join Eurocean's Youth network to advance a sustainable future to the maritime world”
The concept of Eurocean's Youth is to link young Europeans to the maritime world within a unique network carrying the youth’s vision for the protection of the ocean and a sustainable maritime world. Developed by Surfrider Foundation Europe, this network brings together a hundred of young people aged from 20 to 27 years-old, coming from 27 countries of the European Union (EU). They are trained alongside professionals and experts.
Eurocean's Youth welcomes experts with a scientific background in engineering, marine biology and oceanography, as well as experts in law, philosophy, political science, sport, communication...

Blue Up & Eurocean's Youth
During 2023, the Eurocean’s Youth ambassadors are implicated in the non-partisan initiative aimed at putting the ocean protection at the center of the European agenda ahead of the 2024 European Elections: the Blue Up 2024 campaign, launched by Surfrider Foundation Europe.
This campaign will start with a citizen consultation called “It’s Bluedy time, Europe!”. And, the role of Eurocean’s Youth ambassadors is to share and to contribute to this consultation, as a representative sample of European youth and Ocean lover. They deeply worked on the topics of the consultation and wrote their recommendations. From now, they are going to continue to share the consultation across the EU and to advocate for their vision.
