World Oceans Day @ WMO

June 08 2018 @ 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

 

For the first time, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) will be marking World Oceans Day on June 8, with the showing of some short films and an interactive discussion with an invited expert on a marine topic.

This will be a fun opportunity to reflect on the role that the ocean plays in our everyday lives and in the work of WMO – the UN’s specialized agency for weather, climate and water.
