UNITED NATIONS WORLD OCEAN DAY 2022

REVITALIZATION

COLLECTIVE ACTION FOR THE OCEAN

United Nations World Oceans Day was made possible by the generous contribution of Oceanic Global.

UN WORLD OCEANS DAY 2022

This year’s United Nations World Oceans Day, on 8 June 2022, highlighted the theme Revitalization: Collective Action for the Ocean. This was the first hybrid celebration of the annual event, hosted in-person at the UN Headquarters in New York and broadcast live to over 86,000 viewers from 143 member states. The ocean connects, sustains, and supports us all. Yet its health is at a tipping point and so is the well-being of all that depends on it. As the past years have shown us, we need to work together to create a new balance with the ocean that no longer depletes its bounty but instead restores its vibrancy and brings it new life. The United Nations World Oceans Day 2022 programming brought together 30 global thought leaders, shed light on the communities, ideas, and solutions that are working together to protect and revitalize the ocean and everything it sustains. UN World Oceans Day 2022 was Hosted by the United Nations Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea, Office of Legal Affairs, with the generouse contribution of Oceanic Global, which was made possible by La Mer.
