Teen's Dream

We want to help spread awareness of ways to help protect our oceans, that includes getting the word out through social media, create monthly ocean tips, maybe videos and form a new Teens Dream SDG Hub for UN Sustainable Goal #14 Life Below Water.  We will work with our hub to talk with experts in the field with information so that teens in the hub can learn more and tell other teens about how they can protect Life Below Water.  This might include a plan that each member could use to talk with local governments, ocean based agencies and companies that use the ocean for business about how they can do more to protect the oceans.  Ideas for keeping trash and plastic out of the water, using sunblocks that do not have chemicals in them harmful to sealife and cleaning up any chemicals that spill out of boats, vessels or urban runoff need to be shared.  Areas that have a lot of beach tourism, fishing and transport especially should help get the word out to visitors to leave no trace that would harm the world in the water.

The UN SDG my dream most relates to
