Haere mai! Welcome to NZAEE Seaweek!

Seaweek is New Zealand’s annual national week about the sea. 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. Subscribe to our Seaweek mailing list!

Seaweek comprises a wide range of events, activities, opportunities, competitions and calls to action.

Seaweek 2014 took place from 1-9 March 2014. The theme was “Our fragile, finite taonga – be alert to the fragility of the marine environment and its treasures. Kia mataara! Tiakina te au o te moana, he kōpīpī tōna. If you would like to organise an event for Seaweek 2015 or get your school or community group involved please contact the National Coordinator.
