Celebrating our connection to the ocean

World Ocean Day for schools

This year World Ocean Day for Schools was a festival celebrating our ocean connection.

On Monday 8th June 2020 we brought the wonder of the ocean from the deep blue to homes and classrooms around the globe. Our interactive line up was bursting with ocean advocates, live ocean films, science lessons, music performances, yoga, breath-work, storytelling and much more!
