MCN Millennium Oceans Prize 2022 for youth activist – $5,000 prize

The Millennium Oceans Prize is returning for its eighth year to support and celebrate students who are passionate about conserving, protecting, and sustainably using oceans, seas, and marine water and life.

The Millennium Oceans Prize targets Sustainable Development Goal 14 by celebrating youth activists who are focused on enriching their communities through advancing marine and freshwater conservation and sustainable use of marine resources.

The Millennium Oceans Prize, presented by Millennium Campus Network (MCN) and the Remmer Family Foundation, celebrates youth activism advancing Marine and Freshwater conservation, and sustainable use of oceans, seas, rivers, lakes and marine resources.
