Inaugural Ocean Youth Summit inspires next generation of ocean conservationists

Australian National Maritime Museum

The Australian National Maritime Museum is proud to have hosted OceanEarth Foundation’s inaugural Ocean Youth Summit, bringing together hundreds of young Australians unite to learn, connect, and be inspired to champion the cause of ocean conservation.

Over two jam-packed days (April 11-12), the Museum has seen over 400 young people aged 12-24 engage in discussions, interactive activities, and networking opportunities focussing on empowering and amplifying the voices of youth advocates.

Ms Daryl Karp AM, Director and CEO of the Museum, said ‘It is wonderful to see so many young passionate young people coming together and sharing their ideas. As the next generation looks to improve our environment, it is important that we empower them and listen to their concerns and ideas and be inspired to take action.’
