World Ocean Day for Schools’ mission is to deepen the understanding of humankind’s relationship with the ocean.
Plastic pollution, rising water temperatures, overfishing, sewage dumps and many other factors are impacting the ocean’s ability to thrive as it should. Life below the water is in crisis mode and it’s up to everyone to take action in protecting this extraordinary life-source.
World Ocean Day for Schools believes that ocean literacy is the key to accelerating more sustainable practices and informing responsible decision making, and what better time to engage and inspire ocean advocates than childhood.
World Ocean Day for Schools convenes an annual online celebration based around World Ocean Day on 8 June each year. Find the live lessons delivered in partnership with Encounter Edu below.
