Here at Seas of Change, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little hope and support. We are here to be the voice of those who don’t have one. Since the beginning of our organization in 2014, we have worked hard to raise awareness and funds for the plight of marine species and their environments.

Our motto is that “youth may only 25% of the population but that we are 100% of the future,” which is why we believe it is so important to educate and empower young people – we hope you will share this passion with us too!


About the Northern Beaches of Sydney

Framing the coast of Sydney, the Northern Beaches support a rich diversity of native vegetation communities, including some Threatened Ecological Communities. They control erosion through protecting soils and creek banks, reduce land degradation, improve water quality, produce oxygen, regulate micro-climates and provide habitat for a wide range of animals, including threatened species. The Northern Beaches are an important part of Australia’s coast and ecological community and they need our help.


About Planeteer Alliance Blue Climate Action Summit Series

Oceans and freshwater lakes play a crucial role in slowing and reversing the effects of climate change. As part of our work in accelerating known climate solutions, the Planeteer Alliance is excited to be supporting the Blue Climate Action Summit Series to support Planeteers around the world in taking Blue Climate Action — work to protect and restore our oceans and lakes to help their communities and our planet.

The Blue Climate Action Summit Series is being built in collaboration with the NALYS organizers based on the principles they have identified for authentically engaging young people in communities around the world:

  • Uplifting young people’s voices and ideas
  • Empowering young people to connect with, protect, preserve and restore their water systems. 
  • The importance of story and culture in creating connections
  • The importance of indigenous wisdom in restoring our waterways
  • The interconnectedness of problems facing our planet and the intersectional approach needed to solve them. 

Planeteer Alliance is a program of the Captain Planet Foundation, a US-based NGO with the mission of engaging and empowering young people to be problem solvers for the planet.
