Peace Boat invites you to join us for a special presentation about Ecoship and film screening of “Against the Tide, A Journey for Climate Hope” sharing nature-inspired solutions. In collaboration with the Nature’s Climate Hub, coinciding with the UN Climate Action Summit and Climate Week NYC.
Peace Boat, an international organization working to promote peace and sustainability around the world, will showcase Ecoship, the world's greenest cruise ship, followed by a short documentary about the Ocean and Climate Youth Ambassadors Programme, which invites young leaders from small island states on the front line of climate change and ocean degradation to join Peace Boat’s Global Voyages.
Launched in 2017, at the UN Ocean Conference and an endorsed event of the Fijian Presidency of COP23, the programme brings together young leaders from the Pacific, Indian Ocean and the Caribbean to travel onboard Peace Boat’s ship through Europe and to the United Nations in New York engaging with government and civil society representatives. Each edition of the programme has produced accompanying films. The latest edition of the programme ended in New York on World Ocean’s Day with events organized in collaboration with UN partners.
The event will focus on the role of youth in connecting oceans and climate, especially young leaders from small island states. The film screening will also include a Q&A and discussion.
This event is part of the Youth and Climate Activism program of Climate Week NYC.
