Updated: Jun 13

Berlin, 10. June 2024 — Ocean Berlin proudly unveils its marine education program, aimed at transforming the way students of all ages engage with our oceans. Supported by the esteemed Mayor of Lichtenberg, Mr Schaefer, this initiative offers complimentary lectures in educational institutions designed to deepen understanding and appreciation for marine life and conservation efforts.


As a city renowned for its cultural diversity and commitment to sustainability, Berlin is poised to lead the way in empowering future generations to become stewards of our precious marine ecosystems. Led by Dr Lisa-Marie Braun, this program marks a significant step forward in this direction. Join us on this journey towards a brighter, more environmentally conscious future.

The Ocean Berlin educational program utilizes interactive presentations to educate children and students about the fascinating world of the seas — from the surface to the depths, from the smallest plankton to the majestic blue whale. Discussions include threats to marine ecosystems, with participants collaborating to find solutions to protect them. "We aim to impart knowledge, promote sustainable practices, and raise awareness of marine conservation among the next generation," explains Dr Lisa-Marie Braun, outlining the educational initiative's core objective.

The program is available immediately, free of charge, for interested kindergartens and school educational institutions in the greater Berlin area. Inquiries can be made through the contact form at
