We are a community-based, youth-led initiative that supports our growing ocean community to connect with one another and important ocean solutions here in Nova Scotia.
We recognize the important role that the ocean has in our lives, and the lives of future generations. We also recognize the important role we have on the ocean and its biodiversity. Our mission is to create and build upon the legacy of ocean awareness and positive direct action by celebrating World Oceans Day every June 8th, here in Nova Scotia.
We work collaboratively with not-for-profit organizations, academia, corporations, rights-holders, government, and the public to honour the legacy and goals of World Oceans Day. For the past five years, OWHFX has focused its core values on inclusivity and accessibility, and invites broad audiences of all ages and demographics to participate in a variety of educational and recreational events.
In 2019, we hosted more than 40 events with the support of over 35 organizations over 10 days of celebration -- more than anywhere else in the WORLD!
As we move into the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, OWHFX is committed to continuing our own legacy of ocean connections, ocean optimism, and climate justice.
