Today is World Oceans Day 2020 

Posted: Monday, June 8, 2020. 9:56 am CST.

By BBN Staff: World Oceans Day 2020 is commemorated annually on June 8th.

The theme for this year’s commemoration is “Innovation for a Sustainable Ocean”.

The United Nations (UN) say that one of the many reasons to celebrate World Oceans Day is to remind everyone of the major role the oceans have in everyday life.

“They are the lungs of our planet, providing most of the oxygen we breathe. The purpose of the Day is to inform the public of the impact of human actions on the ocean, develop a worldwide movement of citizens for the ocean, and mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world’s oceans,” the UN notes.

The UN said that the theme Innovation—relating to the introduction of new methods, ideas, or products—is a dynamic term, and one that is fundamentally filled with hope.

The UN World Oceans Day celebration this year will take place as a virtual event produced in partnership with Oceanic Global.

The event will shed light on innovations from around the globe in areas of need that are both promising and proven, ones that instill optimism, and ones that have demonstrated the ability to scale effectively.

It will also provide a platform to thought leaders of varied backgrounds, who are paving new paths forward for the health of our ocean and our planet.

The oceans are a major source of food and medicine and a critical part of the biosphere. In the end, it is a day to celebrate together the beauty, the wealth and the promise of the ocean.
