We are a youth-driven storytelling movement for happy, healthy fishing communities.
Coast 2 Coast offers small-scale fishing communities audiovisual tools, communication skills, and digital platforms for local kids and their families to explore and share their ocean-based identities with the world.
Our multidisciplinary team facilitates photography, photojournalism, stop-motion animation, street art, murals, filmmaking and other "edutainment" workshops for students, teachers and families in small-scale fishing villages to express their ideas, needs, and desires with a global audience through impact storytelling.
Through their audiovisual narratives, youth and families engage intergovernmental and organizations, think tanks, and foundations. Their stories are picked up by international and provincial news agencies. National governments are inclined or invited to respond and meet the needs expressed through legislation that safeguards communities and their natural aquatic environments. We work with community members to pitch solutions and find implementation partners.We work relentlessly for those dependent on healthy seas and sustainable fisheries to be represented in global discussions that determine our ocean’s future.
