8 June

The theme of World Oceans Day, “Our oceans, our responsibility”, emphasizes our individual and collective duty to protect the marine environment and carefully manage its resources. Safe, healthy and productive seas and oceans are integral to human well-being, economic security and sustainable development.

In 2008, the United Nations General Assembly decided that, as from 2009, 8 June would be designated by the United Nations as “World Oceans Day” (resolution 63/111, paragraph 171). Many countries have celebrated World Oceans Day following the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, (known as the Earth Summit) which was held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992.

The oceans are essential to food security and the health and survival of all life, power our climate and are a critical part of the biosphere. The official designation of World Oceans Day is an opportunity to raise global awareness of the current challenges faced by the international community in connection with the oceans.

World Oceans Day – The Ocean Project

It was the Canadian government, at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio that first mooted the idea of World Oceans Day. In 1998, UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission lent its support to this international Day of celebration.
Since 2003 World Oceans Day has been co-ordinated jointly by the World Ocean Network and the American association, The Ocean Project.

"The aim of the event is to introduce the young visitors to the world of the sea and seashore, an opportunity they may not get. It is an educational event with an opportunity for children to participate in the interactive activities."
