The Millennium Oceans Prize is returning for its sixth year to support and celebrate students who are passionate about conserving, protecting, and sustainably using oceans, seas, and marine water and life.


The Millennium Oceans Prize targets Sustainable Development Goal 14 by celebrating youth activists who are focused on enriching their communities through advancing marine and freshwater conservation and sustainable use of marine resources. Prize winners will receive mentorship and a $5,000 prize for implementation of a concrete campaign idea to spark change and garner support in advocacy, policy, and leadership for oceans and freshwater systems.

Prize Information

  • Direct mentorship from MCN.

  • Co-curate campaign action groups, mobilizing and coordinating with peers who are passionate about SDG 14
  • Co-curate global webinars with the MCN and the Remmer Family Foundation during the academic year to keep peers engaged and involved.


This program is for campaign ideas that are concrete and can rally your peers to mobilize in this sector.
