About World Oceans Day

Our lives are all dependent on the ocean. It’s how we travel, trade and resource our existence.

We may not view it every day, but its influence on us, and our effect on it, is woven into the fabric of our lives.

The National Maritime Museum is creating a space to interrogate our relationship with the ocean, to raise awareness of its constant influence and consider the care we need to take now, to ensure our ocean, our climate and our environment remain safe for future generations.  

The platform of World Oceans Day gives an opportunity to celebrate and reflect on the ocean. It’s a day for inspiration and collaboration, as we seek a better understanding of how to support a healthy ocean, to create a healthier, sustainable global climate and an environment habitable for all.
