Program Coordinator

Robin Okunowo joined the Captain Planet Foundation full time in 2021 after serving as an intern during her junior year of college. She came to CPF to assist with the Ocean Heroes Bootcamp.

Her full time role at CPF is the Program Coordinator of Planeteer Alliance, where she can support the work of young climate activists through the pillars of the program.

Robin is an advocate for environmental and social justice in all facets of life. In her educational career, she curated a dual degree in Environmental Studies and Philosophy to study the climate crisis through a lens of equity, justice, empathy, and hope. She has dedicated her professional work to empowering young people to be impactful changemakers. Outside of the office, Robin has found a love for the sport of triathlon, and is on her journey to 140.6 in April 2023.
