8 June, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+5.5
Oceans, which cover most of the world, about 70%, provide us with oxygen and countless other resources. Studies on the sea are still ongoing. The nations of the world and India have developed and implemented a number of projects to help us learn about and protect the oceans.
The Pudhuvai Museum, which has been raising awareness about the ocean on World Oceans Day every year, has planned this year as an outdoor event and beach event. This year marks World Ocean Day, The founder and activists of the Pudhuvai Museum visited the coastal areas of Pondicherry and the fishing community there and discussed with them. They also documented their way of life, occupations, boat navigation, net finishing, ancient fishing methods, their rhetoric, speech, and the problems faced by the fishing community on a daily basis through audio and video.
The World Ocean Day event was hosted by a group of marine scholars on the specialties of the oceans and their purpose of preserving them on the Podium of the New Beach in Pondicherry. The event was primarily based on the theme of this year’s United Nations: Revitalization: Collective Action for the Ocean. The event started with a Tamil language greeting and was addressed by Mr. Ma Ilango Aiya, Member of the Mainal Legislative Assembly and Chairman of the National Fishermen’s Council. In the speech he said that this Ocean Day should be held every year with the cooperation of the government.
News about the oceans will be displayed on screen in a way that people can understand through quizzes and their explanations will be presented to the people of Puduvai by the founder and custodian of the Puduvai Museum, Mr. Arivan. The Pudhuvai Museum has commended Mrs. B.
