World Oceans Day onboard Peace Boat - June 8

June 08 2019 @ 1:00 PM - 6:30 PM

World Oceans Day onboard the Peace Boat in New York City

On June 8, Peace Boat will host a special event onboard the ship to provide a venue for civil society to come together to highlight local initiatives on the SDGs, including but not limited to Goals 5, 13 and 14, and mobilize youth for an interactive dialogue on why the ocean matters and how to make a difference for our oceans. Each part of the programme will highlight and encourage youth engagement in raising awareness of the benefits derived from the ocean and our individual and collective duty to interact with oceans with the overarching theme of “Gender and Oceans." It will include presentations, film screenings, educational and cultural workshops, exhibitions and more. This event follows various events being held on June 7, including a daytime panel event scheduled at the United Nations Headquarters, and the annual United Nations World Oceans Day reception being held onboard the Peace Boat that evening.

Peace Boat, an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations, carries out educational and advocacy voyages for peace and sustainability onboard a passenger ship, travelling the world since 1983. Visiting more than 80 countries annually, its voyages create awareness, spur action and inspire positive social change. Working as a dedicated campaigner for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Peace Boat sails with the SDGs logo on the side of its vessel to promote the United Nations 2030 Agenda and inspire citizens to actively engage in the goals. Peace Boat is a core member of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN). Peace Boat is now developing the Ecoship, enabling the reduction of CO2 emissions by 40%, achieving zero SOx and NOx emissions, and recycling 100% of its water and waste. The current ship, Ocean Dream, will visit New York on June 7-8, 2019 (Friday-Saturday) as part of its 101st Global Voyage, coinciding with World Oceans Day.
