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.
