Seaweek is New Zealand's annual national week about the sea celebrated this year from 29 February to 8 March. The week addresses our understanding and concerns about the sea and is hosted by the NZ Association for Environmental Education (NZAEE). Seaweek focuses on learning from the sea. It's about exciting and inspiring all New Zealanders to renew their connections with the sea. Not just for children or those involved with formal education—it's a time for all of us to get to know our ocean, its habitats, characteristics and inhabitants better.
Seaweek is an opportunity to learn about and celebrate our connection with the ocean every year. It is also the best way to create awareness of what has been one of the greatest natural treasures of New Zealand. These mainly free, family events catch the attention of many and it's an open invitation for people to come and participate. Given the ample knowledge about the present issues of the ocean life, further projects relevant to Seaweek are encouraged and participation is easy and supported. Seaweek comprises a wide range of events, activities, opportunities, competitions and calls to action.
Join one of the listed events or put on your own. For more information, please visit 'Seaweek – Kaupapa Moana' official website.
