Leaders for Sea Change Program

As climate change accelerates, the challenges facing the Pacific coast of North America are growing in scope and scale. Leaders for Sea Change are a strong network of diverse ocean scientists working to advance durable, innovative solutions and create a better future for the Pacific and the millions whose lives depend on it.

This year-long program prepared participants for meaningful change within themself, their community, and society. Participants gained strategic communication skills and the confidence to use them. 

Leaders for Sea Change was generously supported by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and the Sitka Foundation.
