Ocean Conservancy today announced a new partnership with Dream in Green, to help the South Florida non-profit craft its curriculum around ocean conservation using science-based content, like Ocean Conservancy’s recent Florida Report.
Jon Paul “J.P.” Brooker, Senior Manager & Policy Counsel for Florida Conservation at Ocean Conservancy, will join Dream in Green on Saturday, September 14that from 11:00am to 2:00pm for its kickoff event at Florida International University to discuss the partnership and share more about Ocean Conservancy’s work in Florida.
“Ocean Conservancy is thrilled to be working with Dream in Green. As a sixth generation Floridian with two young daughters, I know it’s critically important that we equip our future leaders to be good stewards of the environment. We want our children and grandchildren to be able to enjoy the ocean and all the resources it provides for our communities,” said J.P. Brooker, Senior Manager & Policy Counsel for Florida Conservation at Ocean Conservancy.
“Dream In Green educates students, teachers, and communities about environmental issues and sustainability solutions; it is a natural fit for us to be partnering with the Ocean Conservancy to bring ocean issues to the classroom, and to ensure children feel empowered to protect Florida’s ocean, coasts and waterways,” said Jesse Rittenhouse, DIG Board Chair, Sustainability Project Manager & Consultant at The Spinnaker Group.
