World Ocean Day takes place annually on June 8th. The idea of celebrating this day was proposed in 1992 by Canada’s International Centre for Ocean Development (ICOD) and the Ocean Institute of Canada (OIC) at the Earth Summit, UN Conference on Environment and Development, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This day was officially recognised by the United Nation through the Resolution 63/111 on December 5th, 2008. World Ocean Day supports the implementation of worldwide sustainable development goals and promotes public interest in the protection of the ocean and the sustainable management of its resources. 2021 theme for this day is “The ocean: Life and Livelihood”.
