This toolkit serves as the overall guide for the Third East Asian Seas (EAS) Youth Forum: Young Champions for the Oceans. It outlines the activities for the Youth Forum and provides useful information on the value of the coastal and marine environment, thus building an understanding on the need to preserve and protect our oceans and coasts. The toolkit also includes the profiles of the speakers and other pertinent information that may help you as young oceans advocates. It provides useful tips in developing your project proposal that will help translate your ideas and plans into on-the-ground actions. The youth stories section introduces some YF3 delegates and their activities in their communities. We have also included some important facts and figures on marine and ecosystem services that will help you understand the importance of taking on and continuing the efforts for the sustainable development of our oceans and coasts. Exciting opportunities and career options are also presented here to stress the fact that ocean and coastal management is indeed an exciting field of specialization.
