WorldTeach Climate and Ocean Education Symposium

WorldTeach is concerned about how we are harming the future with our collective, negative impact on the world’s ocean. WorldTeach wants to do its part to promote awareness and protect the coastal and marine ecosystems.

We all depend on the same ocean. It is the very “foundation of human life” according to the United Nations’ Convention on the Law of the Sea.

This is why WorldTeach has teamed up with Stevenson School and the Monterey Bay Research Aquarium Institute (MBARI) to offer the first Symposium on Ocean and Climate Education. Please consider joining from June 19th-23, 2017 in Pebble Beach, CA as we learn about the latest in marine and climate science, and are guided in using data to educate our own communities about the fate of our ocean. Invited guests include field researchers from Stanford Hopkins Marine Station and representatives from environmental and education agencies in the Marshall Islands, American Samoa and Micronesia.

The Symposium partners are generously contributing their time and resources to this effort, enabling us to price this conference at cost for $350, including meals, accommodations, outdoor excursion, and all symposium fees. Here is a brochure with more information. To register, email to indicate your interest to symposium@worldteach.org before May 20th.
