Kids Ocean Week aim is to raise awareness and understanding about the health of the ocean and its ecosystem. This includes the reduction of pollution, and education about ecosystem protection. The activities begin with a picture drawing competition, where the winning picture will being used as the image on the beach created by children.
The Kids Ocean Week activities involve speaking at schools on ocean protection issues, and the showing of short ocean films at schools. The culminating event will be in Repulse Bay on the beach where children will be invited to join Human Art event. This Art event will incorporate students, and will be overseen by teachers, as well as local and corporate volunteers, to create an image on the beach that represents a visual ‘ocean message’ to the global community. The message will be photographed from the air, allowing for the full appreciation of the human art object to be achieved.
Connect kids with real ocean protection issues.
