Lead institution:

Heirs to Our Ocean – United States of America (USA)

Heirs to Our Oceans (H2OO) is a US based charity with a mission to help youth understand the role they can play in creating a healthier, safer world for all.

Through capacity developing events, workshops, and initiatives H2OO works with youth from around the world to help them develop their knowledge and skills needed to tackle the challenges facing the world through intersectional solutions.

Through previous work with the US National Decade Committee, H2OO has developed a toolkit and guidelines for implementing Ocean Decade Youth Advisory Councils. These are groups of youth who engage with the Decade at the national level to support the catalysation of Decade Actions, and other local initiatives contributing to the Decade. As a DIP, H2OO would act as a consulting body for National Decade Committees to use as a resource as they set up their own Youth Advisory Councils.

Additionally, H2OO serves as a mechanism through which to engage a broad audience of youth, amplify the voices of youth in the context of the Decade, and offer capacity development in areas crucial to movement building, such as public speaking training, leadership skills workshops, and providing organisational support for youth summits.
