    The ocean is part of our daily lives even though many of us don’t think about it. We breathe, eat and relax thanks to the ocean. June 8th is World Ocean Day, and we celebrate the ocean for all it does for us. So, join us online and discover some amazing ocean-related initiatives! Attend conferences, join a local beach clean-up, listen to podcasts, watch project pitches and learn how to become an ocean hero, not just on this day, but every day !

    Let's Oceanize our lives!
