Event Description

World Oceans Day is an international celebration of oceans and their importance to the planet. It also raises awarness about plastic pollution and the decline in numbers of marine wildlife. I want to celebrate the beautiful parts of the oceans, that we may not have in the years to come. That way, with a lot of effort from us, the reefs will get bigger, the fish and marine mammals will increase in numbers, and maybe, one day, we'll have plasticless oceans, instead of fishes ones.

I am organising an event on Saturday 9th June, which is open to the public. The objectives of the day are:

  • to raise awarness of plastic pollution
  • to encourage people to act against it
  • to educate people on marine life and their dwindling numbers
  • to celebrate our blue planet.

I plan for the day to include:

  • a talk from a campaigner, Dhruv Boruah, who cycled up the river Thames on a floating bike, collecting rubbish
  • featuring art work and performances by school students from across Haringey
  • a performance from three Year 9 Park View students (about rising sea levels and how it affects wildlife)
  • a raffle with prizes such as a reusable coffee cup and an adopt-a-turtle pack from the Marine Conservation Society
  • speakers from environmental campaigns
  • video clips from Blue Planet.
