This year, World Ocean Day is dedicated to Innovation for a Sustainable Ocean, an apt theme on the eve of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development that will celebrate the role of science, research and innovation in bringing back harmony in our relations with the oceans and seas, their ecosystems and resources.
The IOC-UNESCO Virtual Ocean Literacy Summit will celebrate the key role that Ocean Literacy plays in transforming knowledge into action for healthy oceans and seas.
EU4Ocean connects diverse organisations, projects and people that contribute to ocean literacy and the sustainable management of the ocean. Supported by the European Commission, this bottom-up inclusive initiative aims at uniting the voices of Europeans to make the ocean a concern of everyone!
