How to Get Official Community Recognition for World Oceans Day

From 2004-2008, The Ocean Project and World Ocean Network and our partner organizations around the world, created and widely circulated a petition to the United Nations asking them to officially recognize World Oceans Day as 8 June each year. Having tens of thousands of people sign the petition helped make possible the passage of a resolution by the UN General Assembly in late 2008 that officially recognized World Oceans Day.

What about your own town, city, district, province, state, or nation? Getting official recognition on any of these levels is a great way to help spread the message to your entire community and encourage more widespread celebrations of the ocean and its importance in our everyday lives.
