World Oceans Day: Global Celebration at the United Nations

June 08 2017 @ 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM

World Oceans Day is an annual global reminder to honor, protect, and conserve the world’s oceans. Officially recognized by the United Nations in 2008, the UN initiates and supports various activities led by the UN Division of Ocean Affairs and Law of the Sea (DOALOS) each year on June 8th.

This year, the United Nations in New York celebrates World Oceans Day with a special event in cel- ebration of World Oceans Day, co-organized and sponsored by Parley for the Oceans.

The three-hour show will raise awareness for the beauty and fragility of the oceans and highlight the most promising initiatives to reverse their decline, focusing especially on the power of creative collaboration and eco-innovation in the successful realization of SDG 14.

Features include talks from world-renowned ocean experts and explorers, representatives from coastal communities, and voices from current and future generations.
