Tu Sei Oceano.
June 8 - 12 2023

One Ocean Foundation renewed the celebration of World Oceans Day 2023 with the second edition of One Ocean Week Milano.

It was a week dedicated to the ocean with events, meetings, and educational workshops to explain the extraordinary value of marine ecosystems and the fundamental role each of us plays in protecting them, even from the cities.

The aim was to raise awareness on issues related to the sustainable blue economy and the protection of the ocean through the active involvement of citizens to improve knowledge of this natural heritage.
