Sailing for Change in Oceans Week – Peace Boat’s Ocean Youth Leaders

Peace Boat’s youth leaders who are change-makers in their own communities are invited onboard Peace Boat’s ship through its youth programs where they learn from guest educators on board the ship and from different organizations in the countries the ship visits. These youth leaders are all actively working to protect our ocean, many on small island states that are dependent on the ocean and which are on the front lines of the climate crisis.

Join the session to hear more about their communities’ relationship with the ocean and their experiences sailing with Peace Boat.

Speakers:

  • Emilie McGlone – Director of Peace Boat US
  • Khadija Stewart – Peace Boat Ocean and Climate Youth Ambassador
