Our Principal objective is to create an Ocean Literate Society towards a Blue economy based green Bangladesh. Our target is to talk and make them understand how the ocean influences you and you are influencing the Ocean, so what responsibility goes to you for sustainability and eco friendly development. We have been organizing campaign events to school, clubs and societies including decoration of Ocean Galary with posters and models of the seas and oceans, demonstrate documentaries and PPT presentations followed by a ocean information based quiz survey to assess the impacts of our event to make the society concern.
