Good morning! Chlamy’s activities in June are the ‘Save the Ocean Beauty Plea’ campaign!
In order to protect the sea, Clarins and Chlamy went plogging. The activity was held at Masian Tidal Flat in Incheon!
Also, to practice zero waste along with
plogging , we made efforts to bring personal tumblers, minimize garbage, and keep separate collections 🙂 🏃🏻♀️🏃♂️Plogging
refers to the exercise of picking up trash while jogging.
You can pick up trash while taking a walk anytime, anywhere, so you can take care of your health and the environment at the same
time 🙂 After the plogging time is over , the garbage you pick up is sorted and recorded.
Garbage records are shared by classifying fishery waste such as styrofoam, plastics, fishing nets, and household waste such as drinking water bottles and cigarettes. This is an important activity to find out what kind of garbage is generated a lot, such as household waste and fishing waste.
During my blogging activities, I learned about marine debris that I was unaware of, and I decided to work hard to minimize the use of single-use items, especially during the holiday season!
I think it would be good to do some plogging to protect the environment when taking a walk or exercising.
This activity was carried out in compliance with the Corona precautions.
South Korea’s first commercialised hydrogen electric boat has been unveiled at the 2021 Busan International Boat Show, winning the event’s Best Boat of the Year award. Developed by Vinssen, the Hydrogenia vessel is powered by a Danfoss Editron electric drivetrain and sub-system.
In late 2020, the South Korean government announced a US$870 million initiative to encourage the development of eco-friendly shipping to reduce pollution caused by the country’s marine sector. The 2030 Green Ship-K Promotion Strategy, a central part of South Korea’s plans to achieve carbon-neutrality by 2050, specifically targets the advancement and wider use of low-carbon ship technology, including hydrogen fuel cells and propulsion systems. The initiative has set a goal of reducing the country’s shipping greenhouse gas emissions by 40% in the next 25 years and 70% by 2050.

On World Ocean Day (8th June 2021), countries from all four corners of the world – from India to Guyana, South Korea to Austria have pledged to support the ‘30 by 30’ commitment which is being championed by the UK-led Global Ocean Alliance and the High Ambition Coalition for Nature and People, co-chaired by the UK, Costa Rica and France.
This next milestone follows a successful meeting of the G7 Climate and Environment ministers, during which all members agreed to champion the global ‘30×30’ target to conserve or protect at least 30 percent of the world’s land and at least 30 percent of the world’s ocean by 2030, as well as committing to ‘30 x 30’ domestically.

The World Meteorological Organization celebrates the ocean theme for the second time this year as the Ocean, Our Climate and Weather was also the theme of World Meteorological Day on 23 March, which included a dedicated ‘ocean’ issue of the WMO Bulletin as a formally endorsed WMO contribution to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021 to 2030).
WMO World Oceans Day activities also feature the new WMO video, narrated by UN Ocean Envoy, Ambassador Peter Thomson, highlighting the vital role of the ocean in our interconnected world, the increasing impact of climate change, and the need for better ocean services, science and observations to protect lives at sea and in coastal areas. This will be shown within the UN’s Virtual World Ocean Day Ceremony.
WMO has also launched a new Ocean page: an easy access point from which to learn of the various ocean activities that WMO is working across, to support Members.
