Seaweek 2022


Seaweek 2022

Seaweek 2022 ran from Saturday 5 March – Sunday 13 March 2022.

What is Seaweek?

Seaweek is an annual event that was first held in New Zealand in 1992. It was introduced to  educate New Zealanders about the sea and how to reduce pollution and protect the marine environment. ​Seaweek is coordinated nationally by a team at Sir Peter Blake Marine Education and Recreation Centre (MERC) under the auspice of the NZ Association for Environmental Education (NZAEE). Seaweek events are diverse and designed to be inclusive of all ages.

What was the theme of Seaweek 2022?

"Celebrate connections with our seas" | "Toi Moana - Toi Tangata".

Seaweek activities

Annually, over Seaweek, Timaru District Council and Environment Canterbury, present a programme of fun, educational activities to help people think about the ocean and how their actions might impact it. We encourage local community and volunteer groups to also get involved.
