Early-bird registration is now open: Join us in Vancouver, Canada for IMPAC5!

IMPAC5 is where we will come together and take a stand to protect the ocean.

The IMPAC5 Young Professionals Committee is a global group of young leaders who will help chart the course to protect 30% of the world ocean by 2030.

The IMPAC5 Young Professional Committee is comprised of 16 exceptional young professionals from around the world. This group is joining the leadership of the Fifth International Marine Protected Areas Congress (IMPAC5) to:   

  • Ensure that all aspects of IMPAC5 are seen through a youth lens;
  • Help shape thematic discussions and speak on a variety of panels; and
  • Build the legacy of the Congress to engage young people beyond IMPAC5.

The IMPAC5 Young Professionals Committee Members are 18-32 years of age. This dynamic group was chosen through a worldwide competitive selection process. They bring leadership experience, passion for ocean conservation, expertise in marine protection and a desire to help IMPAC5 to change the world for the better.
