Women and the ocean: Changemakers challenge

The Economist Group's World Ocean Initiative has launched the Women and the ocean: Changemakers challenge which aims to showcase leading female changemakers across the ocean supply chain who are working to develop business solutions to achieve ocean-related sustainability. The goal is to ensure that their contribution is recognised and elevated.

Three finalists will be invited to present their vision for a blue economy at the World Ocean Summit in Tokyo, Japan, on 9th-10th March 2020.

To help bring the changemakers’ ideas to life, they will receive guidance from renowned female ocean leaders as part of a 12-month mentorship programme that will begin shortly before the summit. Finalists will be flown to Tokyo and receive a complimentary pass to attend the summit.

The competition is sponsored by The Nature Conservancy. Entries will close on 20th January 2020.
