Ocean Health

Learn how plastic use impacts the health of our planet

Bring local and global ecosystems to life, connecting individual behaviors with the health of the planet. By focusing on plastic use, youth consider their own and their global peers’ local waste management practices and discern the impact of their individual and collective behaviors on ocean health.

Global Nomads Group leverages the power of storytelling to promote empathy and bring social issues to life through day-to-day realities. Read real, impactful, stories from youth participants around the world that reveal deep truths about global issues. Then youth can enhance the conversation by sharing their own stories with fellow Student to World users and participate in moderated live conversations.
