World Surf League Celebrates World Ocean Day Via ‘One Ocean’ Initiative


The World Surf League is celebrating World Ocean Day this week via its “One Ocean” initiative.

The league is an early signatory to the recently announced Sports for Nature Declaration, pledging to deliver transformative nature-positive action by 2030 and beyond.

WSL One Ocean engages fans, hosts event-based activations throughout the WSL Championship Tour season, and funds ocean protection around the world through the WSL PURE Grant Program.

To celebrate World Ocean Day on June 8th, WSL One Ocean is launching its “Speak Up for the Ocean” campaign. This campaign asks fans to share their stories and sustainability initiatives through social media with the hashtag #WSLOneOcean.

The league will use its platform to amplify the voices of people around the world who are taking action to protect the ocean and encourage others to do the same, with the goal of building a community of surfers, fans and ocean lovers around the world who are aligned with protecting our one ocean
