The event will focus on programmes for youth in the Pacific which connect oceans and climate. Peace Boat’s Ocean and Climate Youth Ambassador Programme, launched at the UN Ocean Conference and an endorsed event of the COP23 Presidency, brings youth from SIDS onboard our ship for capacity development and to engage with governments and civil society in ports about the impact of the ocean and climate crisis on their communities. The Ocean Youth Leadership Summit to be held in Palau in 2020 and organized in collaboration with the Sustainable Ocean Alliance and Peace Boat, will impact hundreds of youth in the region.
