The Global Environmental Education Partnership (GEEP) is excited to announce its 2024 Youth Innovation Challenge: Advancing Marine Conservation! In partnership with the Taiwan Ocean Conservation Administration (OCA), this year's challenge provides an opportunity for young people ages 15–30 around the world to share their innovative solutions to protect marine resources. This year’s challenge explores how we can address marine issues, including loss of biodiversity, marine debris, lack of awareness, and other related issues, and support people of all ages to be engaged stewards to support marine environments. The YIC seeks solutions that are innovative, feasible, and informed by research. Winning solutions will receive global recognition and a $1,000 USD prize and be invited to attend the YIC award ceremony at the Taiwan OCA’s marine debris conference in Taiwan in September 2024 (all travel expenses covered)!
