Many children want to help protect our environment but do not necessarily know what to or how to use their ideas. Thanks to the Youth Ocean Conservation Summit kids are able to learn more about how to get started or just meet with others who share their passion for conservation. The 2016 Summit had over 230 participants, workshops around the clock, guest speakers, and even a film fest to kick it off. The Youth Ocean Conservation Summit provides information, empowerment, and support for youth of all ages to get started on ocean conservation projects. The Youth Ocean Conservation Summit (YOCS) just finished its sixth year.
