Carolina Ocean Alliance

Developing Leaders, Cultivating Collaboration, Accelerating Solutions


Our mission is to develop leaders, cultivate ideas, inspire hope, and accelerate solutions to protect, preserve, and restore the coastal ecosystems of South Carolina. Our “network-of-networks” approach emphasizes multi-disciplinary collaboration to promote local solutions and advance young advocates from underrepresented communities in conservation, climate change, and regenerative processes.

We host a community-based hub of the Sustainable Ocean Alliance, a global community of youth, entrepreneurs, and experts, all collaborating to solve the greatest challenges facing our ocean. Our mission is to bring the next-generation leaders, entrepreneurs, advocates, mentors, and partners together to create solutions for the largest challenges facing our ocean.
