Be kind to our oceans, it's World Oceans Day!
Every year on June 8, people around the world commemorate the vast oceans that surround us all. It is important to recognise that these oceans play a crucial role in the biosphere and even in our daily lives. At the end of the day, we are all interconnected to the Earth and these shared oceans.
This year, the World Oceans Day theme is ‘Gender and Oceans’. This theme presents an opportunity to explore the gender dimension of humankind’s relationship with the ocean. Observed by all UN member states around the world, World Oceans Day strives to promote greater ocean and gender literacy and discover possible ways to promote gender equality in ocean-related activities such as marine scientific research, fisheries, labour at sea, migration by sea and human trafficking, policy-making and management.
