Launch of the Volvo Ocean Education Programme in Canada
Event Date: 15th Jan 2018

About the Event

The launch of Volvo Ocean Race's Canadian Education program.

The Volvo Ocean Race (VOR) is putting sustainability at its heart and focusing on taking action to help ‘Turn the Tide on Plastic’ – the rapidly growing and critical problem of plastic polluting the ocean. This issue was highlighted by the United Nations Environment’s Clean Seas campaign that is being adopted by the VOR. VOR aims at using its global communications platform to spread awareness and action on Ocean Health and plastic pollution, including launching an educational programme to change views, and creating Ocean Summits which bring together science, government, sport and business.

The education programme is available on for free download for educators and organisations.
There are four topics in the programme:
1. What is the Volvo Ocean Race
2. What is Ocean Plastic Pollution
3. Ways to Reduce Ocean Plastic Pollution
4. My Positive Plastic Footprint
