People around our planet will also be celebrating and honoring the ocean, which connects us all.

Dr. Price is a senior research scientist and director of the Center for Seafood Solutions at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences. As a specialist in marine ecology, Dr. Price studies seaweeds and global change. She has over 15 years of experience researching impacts of  climate change on marine ecosystems and uses this knowledge to help find evidence-based, local solutions to global challenges.    

This event is free and open to the public. Attendance is limited to 15. Registration is required.For more information or to register please contact BRLT Environmental Educator Tracey Hall: hall@bbrlt.org or 633-4818.

World Oceans Day x BLUEHOUSE Helgoland

Despite the storm, we did not stop this year celebrating World Oceans Day on June 8, to draw attention to the protection of our seas. Together with the James-Krüss- community school Helgoland, the RS Cuxhaven, the municipality Helgoland, the association Jordsand and the bird observatory Helgoland we organized a flashmob to self-composed music (Carsten Graetsch), offered experiments, showed an upcycling exhibition and ideas for Exchanged plastic waste prevention. Unfortunately the family rally failed due to the weather. We are all the more pleased to have this next year. All in all, it was a great day that gave us a lot of fun.

World Oceans Day x Global Dimension

Four ways to get involved in 2019 – at the last minute!

  • Download, print and display some posters from the UN about World Oceans Day to encourage learners to find out more, or use them in parent newsletters or your social media channels to raise awareness, like these ones: World Oceans Day and the SDGsWorld Oceans Day fact or Happy World Oceans Day.
  • Show a short assembly slide show for primary schools from school
  • Ask learners to spend just two minutes at break time or after school doing a litter pick down on the beach, by a local pond – or a litter pick anywhere around school at lunchtime to help improve the environment and recycle plastic that might otherwise end up in the ocean. You can even document your efforts on your school’s social media channels using #2MinuteBeachClean.
  • Show Sir David Attenborough’s message to world leaders on World Oceans Day in class or assembly, or at lunchtime

Five top teaching and learning resource sets supporting World Oceans Day themes

  • The list of resources and activities produced for the Global Learning Programme assists teachers with lesson planning for World Oceans Day. Aimed at ages 7–14, they include curriculum-based resources produced in collaboration with the subject associations for English, maths, history, geography, RE and citizenship but may also be suitable for use in other subject areas. The Global Dimension’s Activity Kit on Water and the Oceans also has links to resources.
  • The World Ocean Network (from the US) has teaching and learning resources for all ages, from films to quizzes and activities, with a focus on climate, how we use the ocean, and plastics.
  • The Marine Stewardship Council is the global charity behind the blue fish ecolabel showing that seafood we buy has been caught sustainably. They have produced a set of teaching and learning resources for age 10-15, including an award winning film created for young people and teachers, lessons, a game, and activity ideas focusing on sustainable fishing and wider ocean sustainability issues. Why not try playing Go Fish! with your class, which aims to help learners understand what fishing sustainably means.
  • The BBC has produced a live lesson with Blue Planet Live, with curriculum relevant activities and learning resources for Science, for ages 7-11. The live lesson looked at the importance of the Earth’s rich marine life, exploring what constitutes a healthy ecosystem and the threats to our oceans such as plastics and overfishing.
  • The Story of Stuff – if you haven’t used these animated films and campaign from the US in your teaching before, World Oceans Day could be a time to try them out with learners aged 11+. There’s a new one focusing on the impact of microfibres on our environment, along with campaign ideas and resources around plastics and pollution.
  • Encounter Edu (previously Digital Explorer) has lots of learning resources for ages 7-16 on different aspects of the ocean that support the Geography and Science curricula – from frozen ocean to coral reefs. Sign up to join their Encounter Live experiences, where learners have the chance to speak directly to scientists working around the world.

World Oceans Day: A ghost net fishing expedition at HMS PERSEUS

The legendary HMS PERSEUS submarine, which sunk off Cefalonia on 6 December 1941, will become our field of action in order to “liberate” it from the abandoned nets accumulated in the spot. The mission is organized by the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation, well-known for its maritime history and research activity, in cooperation with Aegean Rebreath, and is expected to deliver a significant amount of ghost nets.

HMS PERSEUS has remained in history for the successful escape of John Capes from the ship, sunk in 52-meter depth, who was the only one saved by a crew of 61 people.
