One Young World Competition for Sustainable Development  - Nature Solutions and win 50,000

One Young World is offering a competition for participants from all around the world to find solutions to costal natural disasters and ocean degradation and address ocean pollution and advocating for ocean conservation.

About the solution:

  • The challenge invites participants from the examples below, however not restricted to, solutions that could protect and/or restore existing ocean based resources. For example:
  1. Reducing marine waste (along any part of the value chain)  
  2. Alternatives to single use plastic packaging/materials
  3. Support sustainable aquaculture practices
  4. Provide marine conservation benefits
  • Alternatively, solutions linked to opportunities for enhanced or new economic activity derived from the ocean. For example:
  1. Ocean related energy
  2. Blue carbon initiatives

About Credit Suisse:

  • Credit Suisse has already helped to foster partnerships in the ocean conservation space. 
  • It hosted the first Impact Roundtable on Marine Conservation in Lisbon in May 2018, utilising our convening power to attract partners and capital. 
  • The event connected marine conservation experts and practitioners, leading investors and philanthropists across the globe to further progress in ocean conservation and help advance and create investible solutions to restore ocean health.
  • Recognising the imminent need to channel capital towards ocean conservation, CS recently launched a for-return product to offer to its clients, which helps finance ocean conservation projects ranging from the creation of Marine Protected Areas to helping prevent marine waste.
