Important events of June 8
World Oceans Day
- World Oceans Day takes place every 8 June.
- It has been celebrated unofficially since its original proposal 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 (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
- The Brundtland Commission, i.e. the World Commission on Environment and Development, provided the inspiration for a global oceans day.
- The 1987 Brundtland Report noted that the ocean sector lacked a strong voice compared to other sectors.
- At the first World Oceans Day in 1992, the objectives were to move the oceans from the sidelines to the center of the intergovernmental and NGO discussions and policy and to strengthen the voice of ocean and coastal constituencies world wide.
- World Oceans Day is an annual observation to honor, help protect, and conserve the world’s oceans.
- The ocean provides us with many resources and services including oxygen, climate regulation, food sources, medicine, and more.
- World Oceans Day also provides an opportunity to take personal and community action to conserve the ocean and its resources.
