Sustainable Ocean Alliance (SOA) is a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco, California that develops leaders, cultivates ideas, and accelerates solutions in the field of ocean health and sustainability. Daniela V. Fernandez founded SOA in 2014 while she was an undergraduate to give young people a voice and a platform to effect real change on behalf of our ocean and climate. Daniela has since been inducted to 2019’s Forbes 30 Under 30 list and the World Economic Forum’s Friends of Ocean Action. In alignment with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal Number 14 to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development, SOA addresses the greatest threats to the global ocean through its two flagship programs:the Ocean Solutions Accelerator and Ocean Leadership Program.
