CREATIVE, ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE WORKSHOPS
EcoAko is a series of in-school workshops that combine environmental science and the creative arts. Ako, in te reo Māori, means both to teach and to learn. Through EcoAko, we are teaching young people about ocean science while learning from the artworks that they produce. Artworks created in our workshops will form the EcoAko anthology which we hope will spark intergenerational conversations about ocean issues.
