  • WORLD OCEAN DAY (WOD) ACTIVITIES IN 2015

The 8th June has been designated as World Oceans Day (WOD) by the United Nations following paragraph 171 of its resolution 63/111 on Oceans and the Law of the Sea. The theme of World Oceans Day is selected on an annual basis to reflect an issue of importance.

 

On the 8th June of each year, the IOI joins the rest of the maritime world in celebrating World Oceans Day The global IOI network of Centres and Focal points respond enthusiastically each year to the invitation to commemorate this day by organising and celebrating a diverse range of scientific, social and cultural activities. 

 

As we individually or collectively celebrate World Oceans Day, all our activities are inspired by what Elisabeth Mann Borgese wrote: 

  

“The ocean is the real thing, covering almost three-quarters of the surface of our blue planet; the continents are islands floating on the world ocean; the ocean links and unites the continents, rather than separating them and isolating them. The world ocean is our common heritage”.

 (Mann Borgese, E: The Oceanic Circle: Governing the Seas as a Global Resource; United Nations University Press; pub 1998; 346pp; ISBN-13: 978-92-808-1028-8)
