Global Goals – World Oceans Day

Global Goals – World Oceans Day

World Oceans Day is a celebration of our ocean, coordinated and promoted internationally by The Ocean Project since 2002 and officially recognized by the United Nations. This annual celebration takes place on the 8th June and brings together organisations and individuals for awareness raising events on a global scale, as well as acting as a call for ocean conservation action throughout the year.

With increasing awareness of plastic pollution entering waterways around the globe, millions of people will take action for a better future by eliminating single-use plastics, including straws, bags and bottles. Last year over 1,500 events were organized in more than 140 inland and coastal countries, including events hosted by schools, aquariums, zoos and businesses.

“World Oceans Day is the perfect chance to shine the spotlight on the ocean and to celebrate the many ways that oceans sustain people and our planet,” said Jack Johnson, Musician, Surfer and Environmental Activist. “We can all take action on World Oceans Day, joining youth leaders and a global movement, to come together in support of healthy and plastic free seas.”

For 2019, the theme, Together We Can, focuses on what we can all do together to create a healthy ocean and better future. Millions of people are expected to virtually join hands around the world to show their support for protecting our shared ocean.

Bill Mott, Executive Director of The Ocean Project, the non-profit organization that coordinates World Oceans Day stresses the importance of individual action “Whether you live far inland or on the coast, the ocean affects each one of us and our personal decisions affect the ocean.”
