About the 2023 Ocean Awareness
Contest

Climate Heroes in Action encourages students to learn about both climate change and solutions to the climate crisis. We want to celebrate the work of countless everyday heroes fighting to make the world more habitable and just in the face of human-induced climate change. Who is spearheading these initiatives? How can we amplify their work?
