About the 2023 Ocean Awareness
Climate Heroes in Action encourages students to learn about both climate change and solutions to the climate crisis. We want to celebrate the work of countless everyday heroes fighting to make the world more habitable and just in the face of human-induced climate change. Who is spearheading these initiatives? How can we amplify their work?

“After learning about litter, global warming, and invasive species last year, I realized that our ignorance has become a huge problem, and I knew I had to do something. I just didn’t know what. When my teacher told me about Bow Seat, I had my answer. It was a way for me to express my concern and send a message to people about ocean pollution in a creative way. We only have one Earth, and it is our job to take good care of it.”
