WORLD OCEANS DAY
Celebrate World Oceans Day with hands-on family activities; create Love Letters to the Sea postcards acting as a voice for the ocean; visit an interactive display of puppet characters’ to make self-created videos for social media answering questions like ‘how do you ignite people to care about protecting the ocean’; enjoy other fun activities with Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society, Heal the Ocean, and bureo (Jenga® Ocean™ the first board game made from recycled fishing nets), and speak with an expert from the Channel Islands National Park.
On World Oceans Day, people around our blue planet celebrate and honor the ocean, which connects us all. Get together with your family, friends, community, and the planet to start creating a better future. Working together, we can and will protect our shared ocean. Join this growing global celebration!
Love Letters to the Sea is an arts-integrated, creative letter writing project that promotes positive change for our oceans. Rather than feeling overwhelmed by environmental issues, this activity is a fantastic way to empower students and community members to take action, promote innovation, and use their voices to drive policy solutions.
