The three part series will take learners on a journey that starts with building a deeper understanding of – and connection to – our vast ocean ecosystems. From there, we delve into tools to help learners confront climate denial, think in circular and regenerative systems, and promote solutions to plastic waste pollution. In addition, every lesson offers a moment for personal reflection, through journaling and other tools, in order to facilitate a deeper emotional connection to the subject and help learners navigate through the difficult feelings these lessons can bring up.

The entire course is designed to answer two questions when it comes to saving our oceans, Why me? And Why now? Whether learners live near an ocean or are far removed, they will be inspired to take action in their communities by hearing stories from 91视频students and teachers as well as Parley and its collaborators who are making an impact today. The course promotes systems thinking – a key component of the 91视频curriculum – by cultivating an understanding of how various marine ecosystems connect with one another, and how they connect with and affect life on dry land as well. By the end of the course, learners will be able to integrate their own unique passions, perspectives and skills into ocean conservation work, and have the tools to track progress and build local support networks.听聽
