MetadataShow full item record
United Nation (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Thursday urged governments, communities and individuals to celebrate World Oceans Day by helping clear the oceans of pollution and ensure they remain vibrant for generations to come. This came as the Philippines faces a gargantuan task of managing its own garbage problem, having been ranked as third in the list of countries with biggest volume of a 2015 study conducted by the University of Georgia. "We must work individually and collectively to stop this preventable tragedy and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds, including plastic. Action starts at home, and speaks louder than words," the UN chief said in a statement intended for the celebration of the World Oceans Day on Friday, June 8.
