2019 Conservation Focus

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!
