Learning outcomes

The world's ocean covers more than 70% of our planet, playing a pivotal role in regulating climate, supporting biodiversity, and sustaining life as we know it. However, many students around the world are still disconnected from the vital importance of the ocean in their daily lives and the global ecosystem.


Understanding the oceans is crucial for a sustainable future. Ocean literacy fosters an appreciation for marine environments, promotes responsible behaviour, and encourages future ocean advocates. By incorporating ocean literacy into school curricula, we can inspire the next generation to protect our oceans.
