Peace Boat’s Ocean and Climate Youth Ambassador Programme invites young leaders from small island states on the front line of climate change and ocean degradation to join Peace Boat’s Global Voyages. Launched in 2017, at the UN Ocean Conference and an endorsed event of the Fijian Presidency of COP23, the programme brings together young leaders from the Pacific, Indian Ocean and the Caribbean to travel onboard Peace Boat’s ship through Europe and to the United Nations in New York engaging with government and civil society representatives. Each edition of the programme has produced accompanying films. The latest edition of the programme ended in New York on World Ocean’s Day with events organized in collaboration with UN partners.
Peace Boat will invite partner organizations working for the oceans to present their short films alongside our feature presentation, highlighting partnerships and youth empowerment for ocean conservation and climate action. The event will focus on the role of youth in connecting oceans and climate, especially young leaders from small island states. The film screening will also include a Q&A with organizing partners and encourage interactive discussions.
