Save our Ocean through Education

Summary

This project aim is to introduce and develop young marine conservations from under resourced townships. Often young people living close to the ocean but under their national poverty line have never even seen the ocean. Our project aims to engage 80,000 young people a year in ocean conservation and work to create youth ambassadors to help save our ocean through engaging their wider communication. The youth voice is strong, lets help educate it to save our beautiful blue ocean.

Challenge

Oceans in Motion is the a local flagship outreach programme run in Cape Town. Oceans in Motion aims to capture the hearts and minds the children of under-resourced schools around Cape Town who can't afford to visit local marine education centres such as the Aquarium. The organisation's people-centred approach to changing human behaviour as a means of combatting the effects of climate change reached 53,329 children in 2018.

Solution

A fully run outreach program in partnership with the local Aquarium. We aim to fund a Ocean Bus that will be equipped with professional expert staff and resources and will visit township and under resourced local schools. With our fully equipped mobile aquarium facility, we offer children an unforgettable experience with live marine animals. We will also fund aspiring underprivileged students to go onto join a marine internship or training course to create youth conservationists

Long-Term Impact

This project is the start of introducing the awareness of marine conservation that is on the door steps. This project aims to inspire the youths to take action and even look to follow a career in conservation. As well as awareness additional trip into Aquariums and other marine educational centres will be funded and access to internships will be made available to students engaged
