This group will join the existing 10 Council members to help expand the reach and impact of World Oceans Day on the 8th of June, and with continued engagement year-round. This brings the Council to a total of 25 members representing 20 different countries. Council members are instrumental in helping shape the development of World Oceans Day as it grows, providing new and unique perspectives, ideas, and recommendations.

By collaborating on their current projects and embarking on new endeavors, this energetic group of young people show great promise in rebuilding the health of our oceans and conserving them for generations to come.
