World Ocean Day for Schools

15th May, 2019

Following the success of Blue Planet II, the UK has taken such a keen interest in the ocean and our relationship to it. Now campaigners are on a mission to improve children’s ocean literacy. World Ocean Day for Schools, on the 7th of June, is a day to celebrate the role the ocean plays in all our lives, to learn more about our blue planet and to kick-start a fun conversation between children, parents, teachers and communities about our relationship with the ocean.

Hundreds of schools across the country took part last year, hosting blue assemblies and dressing up as marine creatures. This year, the aim is to start an even bigger conversation in schools across the UK using curriculum-linked resources, exciting new lesson materials, fun activities and event ideas. Find out how schools can get involved and register your interest at  and follow the events at #WorldOceanDay.
