Celebrate 8 June is #WorldOceansDay

World Ocean Day

World Ocean Day

“We celebrate World Oceans Day 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. They are a major source of food and medicines 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.” United Nations

The focus for 2019 is: Gender and the Ocean

According to the UN, people and organizations strive to build greater ocean and gender literacy and to discover possible ways to promote gender equality in ocean-related activities such as marine scientific research, fisheries, labor at sea, migration by sea and human trafficking, as well as policy-making and management.

  1. This is very impactful. The Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship is indeed a platform for both prospective and existing entrepreneurs to build a valuable network. In the end, to succeed as an entrepreneur is to keep striving to build a network of connection form like-minded people, to make new friends, to learn, unlearn and relearn.

    • This is great. We have the responsibility to protect and enhance our natural resources. The ocean is one of the great resources we must take good care of. We derive numerous benefits from the ocean.

  2. I know a lady who cleaned the ocean by retrieving flip-flops from the Indian Ocean. She would then recycle them into toys. I was so impressed. Our environment is our responsibility! Wishing you a fantastic ocean day.

  5. I concur with the statement that oceans are a major source of food and medicines 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

    Happy belated Ocean day

  6. Apart from the ocean been a means for transportation and a home for aquatics also as projection of nature’s beauty, I never thought the ocean had other roles in our society.

    I must say i am enlightened.

    Its indeed a great thing to keep our oceans clean apart from being sources of food and medicine, ocean can be used as a source of income through promoting tourism. Tourists would like to travel to different places with oceans just to have that early morning fresh breeze.

    Let’s protect our planet by keeping our ocean. Thank you entrepreneurship campus am really learning here I never knew if there is even world clean ocean day.
