Welcome to World Ocean Day for Schools 2024

Join kids and teachers around the world for a fun, interactive day of learning about our blue planet. Now in its seventh year, World Ocean Day for schools connects kids to the blue spaces around them and inspires them to become ocean advocates (or as we call them, Good Blue Humans!).

This year we’re hosting a world-first global experiment to capture data around marine identity, marine citizenship & connection to the ocean.

Taking place on Friday 7th June, World Ocean Day for Schools is endorsed by the UN Ocean Decade and offers a free day of activities, with a live online assembly, creative workshops and lessons.

What to expect this year

We’re fortunate to partner with some of the world’s leading marine conservation organisations who help us curate a day of amazing blue learning for you! We’ll have special lessons from our friends at Ocean Conservation Trust, Marine Conservation Society, Marine Stewardship Council, Common Seas, Ocean Generation, Manta Trust & more !

All our resources are available in English, French, Portuguese & Spanish.
