Hundreds of events are planned to help people get involved in solutions for a healthy ocean and society – by supporting clean energy choices, trash-free coasts and beaches, sustainable seafood, and more.
“In addition to events in dozens of countries, we invite everyone to take ocean conservation personally by making a commitment and then sharing a selfie for the sea,” said World Oceans Day coordinator, Alyssa Isakower. “We can each do something to help protect our ocean!”
Take action: A small action on your part multiplied by thousands around the world can contribute to a significant collective impact. Here are our top three:
– Help reduce marine debris by eliminating junk mail
– Obtain a renewable energy credit to help combat ocean acidification
– Spread the word about sustainable seafood
Selfie for the sea: Show the world that you are part of the growing movement of people taking personal action for our ocean, take a selfie showing how you’re helping the ocean or make a promise, and post with #WorldOceansDay! Learn more: WorldOceansDay.org/promise.
