Sea and Earth Advocates (SEA) Camp

Empowering young seatizens as leaders in conservation


Empower youth who have potential to be leaders and changemakers in environmental and marine conservation

Sea and Earth Advocates (SEA) Camp

The Sea and Earth Advocates (SEA) Camp is an intensive environmental education and leadership program that aims to raise awareness on coastal and marine issues; promote pro-environmental behavior; and build a network of emerging environmental leaders in Southeast Asia.

For one week, SEA Campers participate in workshops and outdoor activities. They also work on a community-based project in the SEA Camp site. All SEA Campers are then expected to pitch an environmental project or campaign that can be funded for implementation and supported with mentorship.

From 2015-2022, the SEA Camp was supported by U.S. Embassy in the Philippines and the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative. There have been 11 SEA Camps and two SEA Camp Summits.
