PLANET AWARE works with children, young people and their families as well as the wider community, to raise awareness of the importance of healthy oceans to our lives here on Earth and conversely how the way we choose to live our lives is key to ensuring healthy oceans. We want to inspire and enable others to create positive change by connecting to our coasts and ocean through educational workshops, creative sessions, well being events and much, much more!

Planet Aware runs a variety of creative learning sessions for pre-school and primary aged children including Beach and Language groups and Coastal Kids sessions – see our schools page for more information. We also run beach based activities for families and the local community, including Nurdle hunts, strand line and wellbeing sessions all with a creative twist!

During the summer we run our “Ocean Challenge” where families can take part in seven beach themed activities. As part of this we offer free workshops for all community members to take part in.

This year we are running our ‘Christmas-sea’ event encouraging families to celebrate by connecting with each other and their coastal environment, and think about a resource-less Christmas.

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 continue to offer organised beach cleans at regular intervals throughout the year. We provide all the equipment you need to ensure you are kept safe during the cleaning process. We have found this not only helps keep our beaches clean, but offers a sense of personal wellbeing through offering a service to the local community, meeting new people and enjoying being outdoors.

At Planet Aware we are always on the look out for creative ideas and projects to help children and others connect to the coast and oceans and reduce our the impact of our daily lives. If you would like to find out more about working with us get in touch today.
