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. Developed by Surfrider Foundation Europe in partnership with the French Ministry of the Sea, this network will eventually bring together a hundred of young people aged from 20 to 27 years-old, coming from 25 countries of the European Union (EU). They will be trained alongside professionals and experts on two main topics: sea-related jobs and shipping. Aiming at exploring the multiple aspects of the maritime world in Europe, Eurocean's Youth will focus on four different zones : the Baltic Sea, the North Sea, the Mediterranean Sea and finally, the Atlantic Ocean.
The Eurocean's Youth network promotes the youth's vision of the European maritime world during high-ranking international events throughout the year 2022, such as the One Ocean Summit (early 2022), the World Ocean Day (8 June), the European Maritime Day (May 20, 2022), and during the 2022 United Nations Conference to Support the Implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14 (27 June – 1 July 2022).
Eurocean's Youth welcomes experts with a scientific background in engineering, marine biology and oceanography, as well as experts in law, philosophy and political science.
