When did the World Oceans Day action start? Actually, In 2008, the United Nations General Assembly decided that, as from 2009, 8 June would be designated by the United Nations as “World Oceans Day”.
The oceans are essential to food security and the health and survival of all life, power our climate and are a critical part of the biosphere.
Russia and world oceans day
The official designation of World Oceans Day is an opportunity to raise global awareness of the current challenges faced by the international community in connection with the oceans.
Traditionally, Russia is considered to be one of the great maritime powers that play an important role in the exploration and use of the World Ocean. Thus, not only during the Ocean Day, Russians have long been aware of the importance of the sea.
Russia's World Oceans Day
For the economic and social life of Russia, the World Ocean, and the seas surrounding the country in the first instance, is of paramount importance. There are objective considerations for that: the length of the sea border of Russia is 38800 km (the length of the land border is 14500 km); the shelf area is 4.2 million square kilometers, of which 3.9 million square kilometers are prospective for hydrocarbons (at least 80% of Russia's oil and gas reserves are in the shelf of its northern seas); the vital activity of Russia, especially of its coastal regions, depends on uninterrupted operation of the sea transport and the proper support of cargo and passenger traffic.
Currently Russia is in a completely new situation in terms of the establishment of the bases for sea policy as well as the realisation and protection of its interests in the World Ocean.
The Ocean is our responsibility to protect, so OUCO calls the first Global Marine Festival to pay tribute to maritime professionals and all those who work in marine-related professions, on the day of “The Ocean Day”, June 8th, 2022, we will hold Global Marine Festival products live broadcast, as our World Oceans Day action.
