Welcome! Seaweek is New Zealand’s annual national week celebrating the sea. Hosted by the NZ Association for Environmental Education (NZAEE), Seaweek focuses on learning about the ocean because it is so important to all our lives, no matter how far you are from it!

Our mission is about exciting and inspiring all New Zealanders to renew their connections with the sea! This is 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 – Kaupapa Moana 2020 will take place from
Saturday 29 February to Sunday 8 March 2020 

Subscribe to our Seaweek mailing list and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up with all the news – there’s a sign-up box at the bottom right of this page! Seaweek comprises a wide range of events, activities, opportunities, competitions and calls to action. For example you could attend a guided snorkel or a beach cleanup, take part in a planting event or listen to a lecture to broaden your knowledge on various topics relating to the ocean. Our hope is that Seaweek opens your eyes to the impacts we have on our ocean and provides an opportunity to learn about things we can all do to help protect our seas.

If you would like to organise an event for Seaweek 2020 or get your school or community group involved please contact the National Coordinator.
