The World Oceans Day has been recognised in 2008 by the United Nations after it was proposed in 1992 by Canada's International Centre for Ocean Development (ICOD) and the Ocean Institute of Canada (OIC) at the UN's Earth Summit.
World Oceans Day is observed with campaigns, awareness, and education about the ocean and what people can do to save it. For eg: this year, people are instructed to minimize one's impact on the blue planet and reduce, reuse, recycle plastic materials that have proven toxic for the ocean and ecosystem.
The World Oceans Day Youth Advisory Council has been helping lead conservation awareness and action efforts globally.
