MCN Millennium Oceans Prize 2024

 Deadline: 30th of March, 2024

Apply today for the 2024 MCN Millennium Oceans Prize.For the tenth consecutive year, the Millennium Oceans Prize will assist and honor students who are enthusiastic about conserving, safeguarding, and using oceans, seas, marine water, and life in a sustainable manner.

The Millennium Oceans Prize recognizes young activists that promote marine and freshwater conservation and sustainable use of resources, aligning with Sustainable Development Goal 14. Winners will get mentorship and a $5,000 award for implementing a tangible campaign proposal to inspire change and gain support for ocean and freshwater systems through lobbying, legislation, and leadership.


  • Submissions should demonstrate the ability to galvanize peers and sustain active engagement for a full academic year. Although the campaigns will be time-bound, their impact should pave the way for the next series of student movements to transpire.
  • The MCN Millennium Oceans Prize is looking for campaign ideas that are concrete and can rally your peers to mobilize in this sector. How can you engage youth leaders on other campuses and in communities across the globe to fight for and champion advocacy and leadership for the oceans, freshwater systems, sustainable fishing, and marine conservation? Your campaign could take shape through activism, social entrepreneurship, or research.


The best part of this prize is the opportunity to cultivate a community of peers who care just as much about the oceans and marine resources as you do. Here are the specifics:

  • Up to $5,000 to implement your winning campaign
  • Mentorship and support from MCN
  • Co-curate campaign action groups, mobilizing and coordinating with peers who are passionate about SDG 14
  • Write for our media partners about your campaign
  • Co-curate global webinars with the MCN and the Remmer Family Foundation during the academic year to keep peers engaged and involved.
