The Two Oceans Aquarium Education Foundation amplifies the City of Cape Town’s Smart Living programme in a number of ways to engage with key environmental issues such as waste, water, energy, and protecting our biodiversity.

The Smart Living outreach programme is driven by a passionate, conservation-minded teacher who travels out to schools to present a 45- to 60-minute lesson to grade 6s and 7s around waste, water, energy, or biodiversity. By offering topics during different terms, we align with the curriculum done at schools. Our Afrikaans-speaking teacher is able to teach up to 200 children per day. This service is free of charge.
