Celebrating the ocean

World Ocean Day is THE day to celebrate the Ocean across the whole of the Blue Planet!This year the theme chosen by the UN is: ‘The Ocean: life and livelihoods’

How to organise an event for World Ocean Day?

  1. Choose a theme or an activity that is a good match for your locality;
  2. Visit the UN website for inspiration, potential local partners, or resources;
  3. Share your event with the Network and with the UN.

Each year, on the occasion of World Ocean Day, the Network is a partner in the international photo competition organised by the UN as part of the event. The competition is easy to share and is accessible to everyone. It is a great tool to get people interested in World Ocean Day and in its theme of the year.
