What is World Ocean Day for Schools?

A celebration of our ocean connection!

After the success of Blue Planet 2, the UK has taken such a keen interest in the ocean and our relationship to it. Hundreds of schools registered to take part in World Ocean Day for Schools and we want you to be part of starting an even bigger conversation.

World Ocean Day is 8th June which falls on a Saturday this year so we will celebrate at schools on Friday 7th June.
