Our education program will center on the stories told by our Odyssey Ambassadors, those participants in our events who have chosen to go the extra mile in spreading the message The Ocean – Our Future
Who are our Ambassadors?
Sailing a boat around the world is a job in itself, but when we asked which of our Blue Planet Odyssey participants would like to contribute to the education program, the response was overwhelming.
From the southern route of the Blue Planet Odyssey, making their way into the Pacific:
|Tim and Zeke on No Regrets||Janet on Chapter Two||Meredith and Justin on Coconut Woman||Rob and Carol, on Maggie|
|Jeff and Anne on Joyful|
Our Pacific Odyssey Ambassador:
|Lucy on Lovesail|
From the northern route of the Blue Planet Odyssey:
|Nera (15) on Aventura – sailed to Greenland and the Canadian Arctic in the summer of 2014 in an attempt to transit the Northwest Passage. Read Nera’s contributions to Our Ocean Blog.||Zetty and Zoe (8) on Arctic Monkey, who’ll be attempting the Northwest Passage in 2015|
An Ambassador’s role includes
- Setting up links with schools and teachers in their home towns
- Giving presentations about the Blue Planet Odyssey
- Helping prepare resources on the key places and issues
- Sending back regular contributions to the Our Ocean Blog
- Creating links with local schools in the places visited
- Giving presentations in their home schools
But above all… it is their personal stories and experiences which will bring the education program alive, as they sail around the world, and meet people on the front line of climate change.
