The All-Atlantic Ocean Youth Ambassadors are dedicated individuals from all walks of life and backgrounds, who promote sustainable development and stewardship of the Atlantic Ocean. They are currently either in training or education programmes, or in the early stages of their profession. Within the context of the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance, the Youth Ambassadors develop campaigns and communication strategies to reach out to local communities, students and civil society, engage decision makers as well as work with local media to conserve and protect the Atlantic Ocean for future generations. The Youth Ambassadors are also integrated into the collaborative Atlantic pilot actions. Under the framework of the AANChOR CSA and All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance, JPI Oceans co-leads the programme alongside the German Marine Research Consortium (KDM).

The All-Atlantic Ocean Youth Ambassador (AAOYA) 2nd Summer School will run back-to back with the ministerial sessions of the 5th All-Atlantic Ocean Research Forum in Washington D.C. Together with the Forum, the Summer School will offer the 26 Youth Ambassadors a unique opportunity to meet and interact with key ocean actors from around the world, engage in high level sessions with policymakers and government officials, enhance their expertise through educational and training activities, and enjoy a private view into the workings of international relations as well as breathtaking spaces in and around the US capitol city. Hosted by NOAA and as part of the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance, this Forum promises unparalleled personal and professional experiences and opportunity for growth in the ocean sphere.
