2019 Theme & Conservation Focus

2019 & 2020 Theme:

Together we can protect and restore our ocean

When you lead or participate in World Oceans Day events and activities, you are both celebrating our blue planet and uniting with a global community of leaders and changemakers to protect and restore our ocean. This year's theme and conservation focus will guide you and others in the fast-growing World Oceans Day network as you begin to prepare for this upcoming  8 June.

Conservation focus: demonstrate leadership in preventing plastic pollution and share solutions that inspire and activate the global community

World Oceans Day 2019 – with  the 24-member World Oceans Day Youth Advisory Council helping empower people of all ages to become leaders in their communities – will  rally the world to stop ocean plastic, a growing crisis facing society and our shared ocean. World Oceans Day 2019 will build on personal awareness, actions, and commitments to reduce single-use plastic, and mobilize action on the scale necessary to bring about real change. You can be a leader by rallying others - including families, friends, schools, local businesses, organizations, and corporations - for greater involvement! 

Check out these event ideas to begin planning your celebration and get involved! Stay tuned for exciting new resources and much more coming soon!
