The Healthy Ocean Coalition is a national network of ocean lovers – a free-to-join coalition of passionate and supportive ocean champions – dedicated to preventing the exploitation, destruction, and neglect of our ocean, coasts, and Great Lakes.
We are changemakers guided by the principle that we are stronger and more influential together. By collaborating as an inclusive and vocal ocean community, we ensure that conservation policies in the United States are informed by and reflective of the people, regions, and wildlife that they are designed to serve – you.
All too often when it comes to building meaningful relationships with members of Congress and other decision-makers, people feel lost and do not know where to begin. It is our job to work with our members in realizing their conservation goals and serve as their guide along the path toward achieving them.
We have an open seat at the table with your name on it.
Our Healthy Ocean Advocacy Trainings are engaging events that build partnerships, expertise, and ensure you walk away with the necessary tools to be an advocacy pro. Even if you are already an advocate in your everyday work, this training will help you build on your skills to educate your members of Congress and federal agency staff with confidence on ocean and climate policies.
During the training, you will build relationships with your fellow participants and the trainers as well as participate in interactive dialogues and workshops guided by some of the most approachable and influential thought leaders in the ocean and advocacy community. Each session is designed to build on the ones prior, ultimately resulting in clear, concise messaging and actionable next steps following the training.
