Events in Panama (January - March 2023)

8th Our Ocean Conference (2 - 3 March 2023)

With the theme Our Ocean… Our Connection, the Government of Panama will highlight the importance of knowledge as the basis of our actions and policies to ensure protection of our ocean, responsible management of marine resources, and sustainable future economic growth. The 8th Our Ocean Conference will be a momentous event for all governments, businesses, and peoples to demonstrate their interest in saving the ocean through measurable impacts and cooperation.


We cannot commit to saving our ocean ecosystems without limiting human activities within them.
The 8th Our Ocean Conference will seek to highlight the importance of creating MPAs, growing Sustainable Blue Economies and Tourism and finding innovative solutions to end Marine Pollution.

The sixth Our Ocean Youth Leadership Summit is an integral part of the Our Ocean Conference, which will take place in Panama on February 27 – March 1, 2023. Sustainable Ocean Alliance is proud to co-host the Summit, in cooperation with Our Ocean Conference organizers.

This event is an opportunity to inspire, inform, and empower youth participants to build holistic solutions that better balance the needs of society, industry, and the ocean environment. In 2023, the Summit will be fully integrated into the main conference for the very first time, and will embody the overall theme – Our Ocean, Our Connection.


The Summit will be a traditional hackathon-style event, where 100 young ocean leaders will convene in small teams. With the guidance of expert mentors, they will work to solve key ocean challenges across 6 impact areas:

  • Climate change
  • Marine pollution
  • Maritime security
  • Marine protected areas (MPAs)
  • Sustainable blue economy
  • Sustainable fisheries

Over the course of the event, these youth leaders will be provided with opportunities for experiential learning, skill building, and networking. Programming will be delivered in English, with simultaneous translation in Spanish.


Sustainable Ocean Alliance (SOA) is a global organization created for youth – by youth – dedicated to restoring the health of the ocean in our lifetime. We were founded in 2014 by Daniela Fernandez during her first year of college, after she attended a United Nations meeting on climate change – and was stunned to realize none of the experts had a plan to stop it.

Since then, SOA has grown into the world’s largest network of young ocean leaders, innovators, and policymakers. By January 2022, we accelerated 222 solutions (and counting) to the greatest threats facing our ocean. These solutions include for-profit startups and community-led nonprofit projects around the world.
