On World Ocean Day, people around our blue planet celebrate and honor the ocean, which connects us all. In Vanuatu we are getting together with our family, friends, community, and the planet to start creating a better future. Working together, we can and will protect our shared ocean. We are joining in this growing global celebration this coming Saturday (8th June) at TVL house down town Port Vila. Our activitties include a cleanup and litter data collection to see if our bans on single use plastics are working and what other items are a problem here. There is also a chance to ask the Minister of Foreign Affairs about the Vanuatu Governments efforts to keep our oceans clean and healthy by implementing our Oceans Policy. The minister Ralph Regenvanu will be attending teh question and answer session.
