World Oceans Day
As a leader at an organization that focuses on inspiring action to help protect and restore the ocean, I wanted to share some exciting updates about this upcoming World Oceans Day, 8 June, which might be of interest to your organization.
World Oceans Day 2019 – with the 24-member World Oceans Day Youth Advisory Council helping empower people of all ages to become leaders in their communities – will rally the world to stop ocean plastic, a growing crisis facing society and our shared ocean. World Oceans Day 2019 will build on personal awareness, actions, and commitments to reduce single-use plastic, and mobilize action on the scale necessary to bring about real change. As we prepare for this upcoming June, we are also encouraging World Oceans Day event organizers to incorporate more youth leadership into their celebrations and activities.
