World Ocean Day is being celebrated today, it is an annual event that takes place on the 8th of June. This day is aiming to raise awareness about the major impact our actions have to the ocean and remind us of the importance of the ocean in our daily lives.
We rely on the oceans for food, livelihoods, transportation, and trade. World Ocean Day every year focuses on a special theme to organize the event and synchronize a movement globally, this year’s theme is «Revitalization: Collective Action for the Ocean». Shedding light on the communities, ideas, and solutions that are working together to protect and revitalize the ocean and everything it sustains.”
This is the first hybrid celebration of the annual event, hosted in-person at the UN Headquarters in New York and broadcast live. The ocean connects, sustains, and supports us all. We must protect the marine resources we all rely on.
