Haere mai! Welcome to NZAEE Seaweek – Kaupapa Moana!


Kia
ora koutou Ocean Lovers and Seaweek Supporters,

Seaweek Kaupapa Moana is New Zealand’s annual national week celebrating the sea which takes place from Saturday 29 February to Sunday 8 March 2020.

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.

We are using the following theme and whakatauki to highlight the diverse connections and interactions we have with the sea which makes our lives so intertwined with the health of our ocean environment.

Connecting With Our Seas
Ko au te moana, ko te moana ko au  –  I am the sea, the sea is me

Whether you are a Seaweek veteran or this is your first time organising an event, no matter how big or how small, we are here to support and help promote your mahi! If you or your organisation would like to sponsor or support Seaweek 2020 please get in touch with us by emailing seaweek@merc.org.nz

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.
