THE ARCTIC YOUTH OCEANS
Empowering Today’s Youth to Impact the Future
The AYN Oceans Group is a youth-led platform for young people across the world to discuss and collaborate on ocean governance, conservation, and sustainable use.
The AYN Oceans Group is a youth-led platform for young people across the world to discuss and collaborate on ocean-related topics, to strengthen the understanding on the effects of anthropogenic activities on the ocean and its integral importance for all life systems on Earth. In line with the general Arctic Youth Network (AYN) principles, the future path of the AYO is to be a youth-led organisation in which the interests, perspectives, and issues of Nordic and Indigenous Youth, especially regarding the Arctic Ocean, are heard, integrated and supported.
The Ocean covers about 70 percent of the Earth and is the key to all life on Earth. Only recently have we begun to understand the magnitude of the impact, which we have on the marine environment, and the need to prioritise the protection of the ocean and its ecosystems.
