NEWLY RELEASED: The 2023 Social Media Toolkit & Graphics

No matter what your celebration plans are, be sure to spread the word to your online network with this year’s social media assets. 

Sharing why you care about protecting our blue planet is a great way to celebrate. The more people, the better as far as encouraging involvement both online and during any other activities!

Why do you care about protecting our lands, waters, and ocean?

Recently, world leaders committed to protect 30% of our lands, waters, and oceans by 2030, also known as “30×30.” This was a huge victory and worth celebrating! Now that this goal has been set, together we can make sure that our national leaders follow through on their commitments.

For World Ocean Day, you’re encouraged to take action by sharing why you support 30×30. At×30 click the “take action” button to select your top 3 reasons why you want to protect our lands, waters, and ocean. Then, spread the word to your networks, and incorporate this “30×30 action” into your plans. Check out these additional ideas and resources to help you incorporate an action.
