    • We are now accepting applications for the 2020 Science Without Borders® Challenge! This international student art contest encourages students to be creative while learning about important ocean science and conservation issues. The SWB Challenge is open to middle and high school students 11-19 years old, with prizes of up to $500 awarded to the winning entries. The theme for the 2020 Science Without Borders® Challenge is “Take Action: Conserve Coral Reefs.” For this year's contest, we are asking students to use their artistic talents to create a piece of art that illustrates actions that can be taken to preserve coral reefs.

    Our partners at Reef Ecologic are hosting a Youth Leaders Workshop at #ICRS2020! The Youth Leaders Workshop asks representatives of today’s youth, “What is the role of the next generation in supporting coral reef health and resilience?” This workshop presents an opportunity to engage the leaders of tomorrow in meaningful conversation around the ecological, social and economic values around coral reefs. The workshop will take a multi-faceted approach to problem-solving and address elements of good leadership and collaborative decision making to deliver realistic, achievable solutions to coral reef health.

    This is an opportunity to join with a select few of the next generation to discuss options for tackling the coral reef crisis.

    The Youth Leaders Workshop is specifically designed to explore opportunities to improve the health of coral reefs globally, incorporating key elements of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This opportunity will enable participating students to better understand reef health issues and strategize with industry leaders and professionals in their field how they may become part of the solution in tackling the challenging future of coral reefs.

    While on the Global Reef Expedition in Tonga, our education team shared our knowledge of coral reefs with over 2,300 people! We spoke with 17 communities across the islands, taught students at 15 schools, and met with government officials and local leaders.

    After the research mission was complete, we returned to the Vava’u Island Group to conduct more extensive education programs with primary and secondary students.
