World Oceans Day is a powerful reminder of the ocean’s essential role in our lives,  acting as the planet’s lungs, providing vital resources, and being a key part of the  biosphere.

The clean-up highlights the Ministry’s dedication to increasing awareness about the  impact of human activities on our oceans and rallying the public to help protect the  beautiful waterfront. 

Volunteers are encouraged to assemble at the Gouyave Fish Market at 6:00 a.m. 

The Honourable Kerryne James, Minister for Climate Resilience, the Environment,  and Renewable Energy, and the Parliamentary Representative for the area will be  there to welcome participants. Volunteers will be provided with essential clean-up  materials and instructions for the event, which is expected to be completed by noon. 

This event is supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP),  Republic Bank Grenada Limited, the Grenada Solid Waste Management Authority,  and the Grenada Bottling Company, through its Coca-Cola brand. 

Join us in making a tangible difference and demonstrating our dedication to protecting  our oceans for future generations.
