NZAEE Seaweek will be held from February 26 t March 6, 2011, throughout New Zealand. It is a national celebration of the sea held annually and coordinated by the New Zealand Association for Environment and Education. Seaweek allows New Zealanders to come together and celebrate the sea, providing them a wide range of opportunities to learn about the fantastic marine environment and share their experiences of the sea. In fact, in more ways than one the event is all about exciting and inspiring all New Zealanders to renew their connection with the sea – get to know the ocean, its habits, characteristics and inhabitants. A wide range of events, activities, opportunities and competitions are organized during the Seaweek. This is the time when you should book business class seats and fly business class to Auckland in comfort to see closely and be a witness to all the excitement that the Seaweek has to bring to you.
This flagship event of the NZAEE, which has been running annually for the past 20 years, provides special opportunities to the people of New Zealand to experience the beauty and mysteries of, and learn more about, the significance of the marine environment. This is the only nationwide event dedicated to learning from the sea and developing a better understanding of what sustainability might mean in the marine world. If you want to experience and take part in this exciting event then you just need to buy business class tickets without any further delay and travel by business class flights to Auckland to participate in NZAEE Seaweek. The SeaWeek theme for 2011 is "Back to the Future! The culture, history and traditions of the sea. Kia kaha tangata moana!"
National Coordinator of Seaweek 2011, Mels Barton, says, “We can all link our history back to the sea. As an island nation New Zealand’s people have all arrived by sea from other lands and have depended on the sea for food, trade, transport and recreation. Our stories about the sea are deep rooted in myths and legends, and many of our special places are beside the sea. So Seaweek is asking all New Zealanders to tell us what does the sea mean to you and what are the stories you’d like to share about the sea? From whaling to whale watching, fishing to surfing, singing to sailing, our use of the sea has changed throughout our history. Exploring these traditions and learning from them is what Seaweek is all about.”
From February 26 to March 6 a daily competition will be held on The Treaty of Waitangi topics, which is essentially meant to test the knowledge related to the sea as well as the land. Mana BioBlitz 2011 Design Your New Species – Art Competition will also be held during the Seaweek. Do remember to get business tickets to Auckland and travel by business class airlines, and have all the fun during the Seaweek.
