Black Sea Young Ambassadors Spark a Flourishing Positive Influence

New 15 promising young early career ocean professionals from the Black Sea region have now embarked on the important task of becoming the voice of the Black Sea. The inception of the Black Sea Young Ambassadors Programme in 2020, as part of the Black Sea CONNECT CSA, aimed to unite the region’s youth in shaping the future of the Black Sea.

The new cohort already made a swift start by sharing their stories as the young voices of the Black Sea at the Launch event of the SRIA Implementation Plan, promising to draw inspiration from the region’s rich history under the umbrella of this comprehensive plan.

Furthermore, hosted by H2020 BRIDGE-BS and Black Sea CONNECT projects in İstanbul, they have completed a two-day summer training on science and policy communication, igniting their passion to make a difference in the Black Sea region. Stay tuned as the Black Sea Youth will put their newly acquired knowledge into action, creating a brighter future for our beloved Black Sea!
