United Nations World Oceans Day is June 8. It is a day to celebrate the one ocean that connects us all. This World Oceans Day, join the UN virtually to raise global awareness for the abundance our ocean provides humankind, and our individual and collective duty to use its resources sustainably. Mobilize alongside business leaders, celebrities, governments, and research institutions over discussions on innovations for a sustainable ocean. This all-digital event, in partnership with Oceanic Global, is free and open to all online. Learn more and register here, and join the conversation @UNWorldOceansDay.
