The concept of 'World Oceans Day' was first decided to celebrate World Oceans Day every year at a forum called 'Earth Summit' held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992.

To mobilize the global population on a project for sustainable management. Although it was officially recognized by the United Nations only in 2008.

On the other hand, on World Ocean Day, people come together and discuss the safety of the ocean so that our future generations can understand the importance of oceans and they can contribute to saving them.

On the occasion of World Oceans Day, the United Nations said that the oceans are considered the lungs of the planet, an important part of the biosphere and a major source of food and medicine. The purpose of celebrating this day is to inform and educate the public about the impact of human actions on the oceans.
