All our Goals are important, but today of all days, on World Oceans Day,
nothing is more important than Goal 14 – Protect the Ocean.
The science is clear: a thriving ocean is our best ally in addressing the climate crisis.
Later this month, leaders will be meeting in Lisbon for the United Nations Ocean Conference. Our message to them is clear: ocean action is climate action. Both should be addressed with the same urgency. Both should be on every leader’s #BlueToDo List.
That’s why and are asking you to join us in putting Goal 14: Protect the Ocean, first, by placing a Goal 14 sticky note over an image of something that’s important to you. It might be a favourite ocean spot, a loved one you want to protect the ocean for, or anything else precious to you. By doing so you’re getting us closer to our #BlueToDo:
a healthy ocean for a healthy planet.
Here are four simple ways
1. Cover a photo that’s important to you with the Goal 14 sticky note & share to your social channels.
Using our handy tool, upload an image that’s important to you. You’ll find the Goal 14 sticky note already provided as an overlay. Move it into position over your image, then download your picture. Share it across your social channels, with our handle and hashtags in your message.
