To celebrate the United Nations World Oceans Day 2023 theme, Planet Ocean, the United Nations is joining forces with decision-makers, scientists, private sector executives, civil society representatives, indigenous communities, celebrities and youth activists and more to put the ocean first. Tune-in for the live broadcasted event today (8 June).
It is time to put the ocean first. The ocean covers the majority of the earth, but we have only explored a small portion of its waters. Despite humanity’s utter reliance on it, and compared to the breadth and depth of what it gives us, the ocean receives only a fragment of our attention and resources in return.
The live broadcasted event is held from 10AM-1:30PM EDT on Thursday, June 8th at UNWorldOceansDay.org.
The line of presenters include Sylvia Early, Fabien Cousteau, UN General Secretary H.E. António Guterres, Jason Momoa, Whaia, Diva Amon, Lucas Bravo, Moussa Wele and Ray Dalio
Oceans Day was first declared as 8 June, 1992 in Rio de Janeiro at the Global Forum, a parallel event at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) which provided an opportunity for non-government organizations (NGOs) and civil society to express their views on environmental issues.
UN World Oceans Day is hosted by the Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea of the Office of Legal Affairs in partnership with Oceanic Global and supported by Panerai.
