PLANET AWARE works with children, young people,their families, and communities to promote awareness of the importance of healthy Oceans to our lives on Earth, and how the choices we make in our everyday lives impact them. We want to inspire and enable others to create positive change. From plastics to power, cutting the amount we consume, reducing waste and pollution is key to ensuring healthy Oceans for future generations. Our educational sessions, shore learning, fun campaigns, and events including on going beach litter picks, all provide opportunities for awareness and change.
Planet Aware hosts community events that are either no-cost or low-cost, including Beach Cleans and our ‘Alternative Spirit of’ events that encourage people to celebrate seasonal events by connecting with each other and their coastal environment. We run beach based activity sessions for children, Ocean wise (eco) groups, run visiting workshops, run ocean well-being activities and more. So if you are a parent, nursery, school or youth group please get in touch to find out more!
In 2019 we launched what is now the Isle of Wight Beach Hub . Here you can find out how to run your own beach clean or get involved with an organised event.
We want to enable young people to develop projects with local partners in their community to create positive change. Local businesses and organisations and other community organisations are key to making this happen. We have previously ran Textile Transformation – our project to help keep textiles in use for longer and make people more aware of the impact of the fashion industry on our environment and our oceans – We would like to enable more projects to happen involving our young people.
At Planet Aware we are always on the look out for creative ideas and projects to help you reduce your impact on the natural world around us. If you would like to find out more about working with us get in touch today.
