Green-Schools are excited to launch the first ever Marine Week. This active learning experience will inspire and educate primary and secondary school students working on the Global Citizenship Marine Environment theme. Each day, new activities will be uploaded to the Marine Week event page for you and your students to access. There will be interactive talks, art, wellbeing activities, educational videos and science experiments on a range of topics such as the importance of our oceans, marine biodiversity, Global Goals and solutions to the marine litter problem. You can take part at home, or in the classroom.
