One Ocean, One Climate, One Future – Together
World Ocean Day is an international day that takes place annually on 8 June and was officially recognised by the United Nations in 2008. The international day supports the implementation of worldwide Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and fosters public interest in the protection of the ocean and the sustainable management of its resources.
On World Ocean Day, people everywhere can celebrate and take action for our shared ocean, which connects us all. By working together, we can, and will protect and restore our shared ocean.
The theme for World Ocean Day in 2021 is 'The Ocean: Life & Livelihoods'. The aim of this year's campaign is to "shed light on the wonder of the ocean and how it is our lifesource, supporting humanity and every other organism on Earth".
