World Oceans Day 2023
The World Oceans Day is celebrated on June 08, 2023. It is a day to honor the world’s ocean, celebrate the products the ocean provides. The day is observed annually. World Oceans Day had been unofficially celebrated every 8 June since its original proposal in 1992 by Canada. At the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2008 this day was officially recognized by the United Nations. Since then it has been coordinated internationally by The Ocean Project and the World Ocean Network with greater success and global participation each year.
The Day provides an opportunity to get directly involved in protecting our future, through a new mindset and personal and community action and involvement – beach cleanups, educational programs, art contests, film festivals, sustainable seafood events, and other planned activities help to raise consciousness of how our lives depend on the oceans.
