WE PREPARE YOUTH TO CREATE EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS
Heirs To Our Ocean purposefully structures every youth interaction to disrupt the existing power dynamics that are rooted in inequitable distribution of resources. All programming is focused on collaboration across a diverse spectrum of socio-economic backgrounds and communities. By doing so, youth create effective and actionable solutions to the humanitarian and environmental crises they face.
H2OO works with youth in partnership and its methodologies represent a new and different approach to education as empathetic, connected and informed young leaders emerge from its programs.JOIN US
OUR COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH
INSPIRING WORLD LEADERS OF TOMORROW
We inspire world leaders of tomorrow by connecting youth to one another and their natural environment while providing real-world education and empowerment skill building, including empathetic leadership skills. Diverse youth groups participate in collaborative problem-solving, each bringing in their life experiences and ways of processing to create new solutions for the world’s complex problems. They inspire and motivate one another to act, and they collaborate in advocating for all youth who are inheriting our Blue Planet.
