World Oceans Day
On Wednesday June 8, join us at Green-Schools as we celebrate World Oceans Day.
World Oceans Day provides a unique opportunity for people across the globe to celebrate the ocean that connects us all! Then aim of the day is to increase awareness of our oceans, highlight the vital role they play, and to inspire actions to create a healthier ocean and a better future. Whether you live on the coast or inland, we all need a healthy ocean to survive and thrive. The ocean generates most of the oxygen we breathe, helps feed us, provides materials we use in our everyday lives, and regulates our climate. By protecting our ocean, we also protect our climate, and our future.
Check out the resources below to start a conversation about the importance of oceans in your classroom:
