We’re all getting wise to our impact on the earth, and this week is the time to build on the lessons we learned from all those back-to-back episodes of ‘Blue Planet’. On Saturday June 8, you can take a deep dive into the World Oceans Day celebrations across London.
At the National Maritime Museum, a full day of performances, workshops and talks focuses on the importance of saving our seas. You can help make a giant coral reef out of recycled materials, catch an enchanting performance from a singing mermaid that’ll have you wondering if you’ve made it into a live-action Disney remake, and get swept up in a costume parade led by artist Anna Kompaniets.
Meanwhile, over in Soho, there’s a pop-up exhibition by the Project 0 initiative as part of Soho Music Month. And those wanting to get political can dress in blue to join a Greenpeace ‘human wave’ from Westminster Bridge to the Foreign Office. With this much to sea and do (sorry), you’ll finish the day as happy as a clam – and vowing never to use a plastic straw again.
