Women and the ocean: Changemakers challenge

Women play a significant role in the blue economy, yet their input rarely receives the support, recognition and publicity it deserves. In light of their crucial work in areas such as conservation, scientific discovery and technological development, why are women so often overlooked?

The World Ocean Initiative has launched the Women and the ocean: Changemakers challengeThis competition, sponsored by The Nature Conservancy, aims to showcase leading female changemakers working to develop business solutions to achieve ocean-related sustainability. The goal is to ensure that women are visible across the ocean supply chain and that their contribution is recognised and elevated.

The winners will be paired up with female ocean leaders for a 12-month mentorship. The mentors and mentees will come together for a special session at the World Ocean Summit in Tokyo next year.
