The United Nations Ocean Decade Children Oceanic Pottery Project
8 June, 2022 - 12 June, 2022
In response to the United Nations Ocean Decade (2021-2030), as well as celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, UNESCO Hong Kong Association, Hong Kong Institute of Education for Sustainable Development and the Hong Kong Children’s Arts and Cultural Exchange Association (HKCACEA) co-organised this project to bring ocean knowledge and understanding of the marine system, marine species, marine biodiversity to Hong Kong’s young generation through a creative and engaging process. The project also raises awareness for ocean conservation in Hong Kong through fundraising, using pottery creation from participating kindergarten students.
The exhibition will take place in Central Market Hong Kong from 8 June 2022 to 12 June 2022, with online auction of potteries running in parallel.
The potteries will be auctioned to raise funds for the publication of a project booklet, which will be submitted to the United Nations Ocean Decade, as well as being printed and distributed to schools, students, and public figures to raise further awareness and promote ocean conservation.
