“WORLD OCEANS DAY” is the United Nations recognized day of celebration and ACTION for ocean conservation. This year’s theme is “healthy oceans, healthy planet” – with an emphasis on stopping plastic pollution.
“Why does KONCEPT EVENTS care?”
KE is a corporate events planning agency with headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Aside from our organization’s natural proximity to the ocean and a multitude of ourSERVICES being beach and ocean integrated…ocean conservation is an issue that affects our entire planet.
When KE established the brand’s formal CSR platforms in 2014, ocean conservation was a clear and immediate focus.
“71% of the Earth’s surface is covered by ocean.”
That is a significant ecosystem that contributes to our total environment. DID YOU KNOW THAT THE WORLD’S OCEAN…
- Generates most of the oxygen we breathe
- Helps feed us
- Regulates our climate
- Cleans the water we drink
- Offers a pharmacopoeia of potential medicines
- And SO MUCH MORE!
Not to mention we have an incredible team full of event professionals that love to enjoy the inspiring beauty of the ocean in their downtime. From SCUBA CERTIFIED DIVERS,PASSIONATE SHARK RESCUERS, and more….ocean conservation is a topic that is highly personal to our staff!
GET YOUR FEET WET.
So have we caught your attention? Great! Here are some suggestions from our team to yours so that you can get started and incorporate protecting our oceans into your business development and create your own CSR focus:
- Schedule a beach clean up with your team.
- Sponsor a marine mammal through an organization that provides research, healthcare and protective services.
- Spread the word. Use your social media to educate people on the importance of getting involved.
- Book a shark tagging excursion.
These ideas can be perfect as baby steps. If you already have some of these programs in place – GREAT! Take it to the next level. Get one of your corporate partners involved and have them join you on your ocean or beach clean up. The more hands involved the more progress you make. Sponsor a marine mammal in your company’s name and sponsor another one in the name of an amazing client as a gift to them. The possibilities are endless.
The most important thing to remember is it doesn’t matter how large or seemingly small your contribution to making our oceans healthier is. What matters is that you GET involved. “World Oceans Day” also makes it easy for you to join others in your community that are making an effort. CHECK THEM OUT. You will be joining a world wide network of people who care.
