Heirs To Our Oceans

Heirs to Our Oceans is a rising tide of young leaders around the globe who are taking the ocean crisis into their own hands, educating themselves and others, bringing hope and solutions to the surface, and creating waves of change that will ensure the health of our blue planet for their generation and for future generations.

The Problem

The environmental crisis facing the ocean is something that the current generation is going to feel the impact of during their entire lives. From food security to plastic pollution and having clean water, this generation will face a different world. Heirs To Our Oceans prepares kids for success and leadership in a changing and challenging future.

The Solution

Our mission is to empower youth to become experts, activists, and leaders who will drive environmental and social change necessary to create a more prosperous and equitable future. Our Vision is that today’s youth and future generations live on a planet with thriving oceans and more equal opportunities for all.

Our projects, in part, are:

  • Open an ocean-protecting science-focused school in Micronesia that gives islander youth access to better education opportunities and to ocean research and conservation;
  • Grow to have 20 chapters internationally;
  • Host 1-3 Youth Empowerment & Human Impact Oceans Camps in the next year;
  • Finish our full-feature length Heirs film to continue to drive global action on marine conservation priorities.

Each of these projects works to educate and train future leaders who will foster sustainable policies for a healthy ocean. The ocean is a critical part of the earth's life support system, the global mission of the Heirs To Our Oceans will have a profound effect on humanity's future.
