Monday 8th June 2020 is nominated “World Oceans Day”, when people around our blue planet celebrate and honor our ocean, which connects us all. It’s an opportunity to get together with your family, friends, community, and millions of others around our blue planet to start creating a better future.
For 2020, World Oceans Day is growing the global movement to call on world leaders to protect 30% of the world’s ocean by 2030 – a campaign called 30×30. By safeguarding at least 30% of our ocean through a network of highly protected areas we can help ensure a healthy home for both marine and human life.
A global petition has been launched to help apply pressure to national governments that can be signed at www.worldoceansday.org.
There are number of global events taking place this year and you can join in with something as simple as your own beach clean.
By working together, we can help protect and restore our shared ocean. Join this growing global celebration on 8 June, but why not keep it going all year round!
