The critical role that oceans play in our environment, health and livelihoods, and the importance of safeguarding the ocean environment has never been more important. Engaging future leaders in the ocean through innovative ocean education is critical to equip children with the tools and experiences to become champions of sustainable oceans in the future.

But how do children engage with the ocean? And what does this look like in the classroom? How can we engage children with the ocean, even if they do not live near it, in ways that stays with them throughout their education and beyond?

This webinar explores how ocean literacy can be brought to the classroom, and beyond, through multi-disciplinary project based learning in different education contexts from small island schools to large urban schools far from the ocean.

With presentations from Class Teachers from around the world, the session will explore existing programmes, such as the Island Explorers programme, to share experiences and practices and discuss what works in education for ocean literacy and sustainability. With leading education organisations, and input from the UN World Ocean Day Youth Advisory Council, we will also discuss how pupils can move beyond their school experience to push the boundaries of action and policy on oceans.
