On Saturday June 11th, Back to the Sea Society will be leading a workshop as part of the Ocean Literacy Conference 2016: Ocean Optimism being held in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This second annual conference is lead by the Canadian Network for Ocean Education (CaNOE). Our workshop, titled A Seasonal Aquarium for Halifax Metro: Come be Part of the Creation!, will engage participants with hands-on and interactive activities that will get them to think creatively, reconnect with their inner child and unleash their imagination.
This workshop will allow participants to contribute to the making of the Back to the Sea Aquarium. We will be inviting participants to think big in terms of how we can all approach ocean conservation. The group will be invited to think outside the box, beyond the containment of an exhibit tank. Our exercises are sure to generate surprising ideas that will be valuable contributions to the Back to the Sea Society as well as bring insight to other ocean-related work that the conference participants are involved with.
The deadline to register for this year's conference is June 1st, so be sure to register today if you are interested in attending and participating in our workshop.
I attended last year's conference held in Vancouver and was blown away by all the top notch presentations! I am positive that this year's conference is sure to please all educators, researchers and other ocean enthusiasts.
If we don't see you there, be sure to check back here for an update on how it went!
