World Ocean Day aims to unite the world to protect our blue planet. This year, the United Nations will host the celebration of the annual event on 8 June 2023, hosted in-person at the UN Headquarters in New York to be broadcasted live. It will highlight the 2023 theme of "Planet Ocean: tides are changing".
The event will focus around how Earth is more than it may seem, and generate a new wave of excitement towards cherishing and protecting the ocean and the entirety of our blue planet. You can tune in by clicking here.
