About World Ocean Day 2021

World Oceans Day is celebrated every year on June 8. This year, the theme of World Oceans Day is 'The Ocean: Life and Livelihoods'. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, World Oceans Day 2021 will be the second virtual gathering. The concept of World Oceans Day was first proposed in 1992 at the Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit. This idea arose from a desire to honour the world's shared ocean and people's personal connections to it. This raised public awareness of the ocean's critical role in our lives and the critical ways in which individuals can help to protect it.
