the Bootcamp

The Ocean Heroes Bootcamp will empower existing and emerging youth leaders to create their own campaign to take action against ocean plastic pollution, starting with the single-use plastic straw! 

The Bootcamp will open with the celebration of actor and environmental activist Aidan Gallagher's designation as a UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador for North America! Aidan will become the youngest ambassador to be designated by UN Environment.

the impact

Designed for youth leaders between 11 - 18, the Ocean Heroes Bootcamp will give youth leaders the scientific knowledge, campaign development tools, coaching, inspiration and support they need to create change.

During the Bootcamp youth leaders and their "Squads" will create campaigns to reduce plastic pollution through the single-use plastic straw. 

The campaigns created during Ocean Heroes Bootcamp will be delivered to world leaders at the 2018 G7 Summit in Canada.
