About

World Ocean Day catalyzes collective action for a healthy ocean and a stable climate.

On 8 June and year round, we work in collaboration with youth leaders and a wide range of organizations.

Powered by the World Ocean Day Youth Advisory Council, we help unite and rally the world to protect and restore our blue planet! World Ocean Day supports collaborative conservation, working with its global network of youth leaders and 2,000+ organizations in 150+ countries, and providing free and customizable promotional and actionable resources.

The United Nations has officially recognized 8 June since 2008. 

"Embracing positive news isn't just a luxury; it's a conscious investment in our well-being. Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. In a world filled with challenges, it's essential to read uplifting stories that reshape our mindset and empower us to build a brighter future."
