All Events >

June 13, 2020 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

For the fourth year in a row, Ko Olina Resort in partnership with NOAA and other community partners will host a World Oceans Day Celebration. The event will be held virtually on Saturday, June 13th starting at 3:00 p.m. World Oceans Day is a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future. The virtual celebration will feature storytelling with special guests, musical performances, and education and sustainability activities with a strong career focus.

The Hawaiian ʻōlelo noʻeau (Hawaiian Proverb) “Kui ‘ia ka lei moku e Kanaloa” translates literally to “The islands are strung together as lei by Kanaloa, god of the sea”. During these extraordinary times, the ocean has been a source of comfort, a place to recreate and most importantly provides sustenance for those in need. These similarities and connections we share across the globe serves as an important reminder that now, more than ever is the time to stand together and unite our efforts to protect our common ocean legacy for ourselves and for future generations.

Please join us for this 2-hour special event. The event can be accessed at: www.facebook.com/OiwiTV
