Wanted! Seas and Oceans – Dead or Alive?

The World Environment Day theme for 2004 was Wanted! Seas and Oceans – Dead or Alive? The theme asked that we make a choice as to how we want to treat the Earth’s seas and oceans. It also called on each and every one of us to act. Do we want to keep seas and oceans healthy and alive or polluted and dead?


The main international World Environment Day 2004 celebrations were held in Barcelona, Spain with the support of the City of Barcelona, the Autonomous Government of Catalan, the Government of Spain and the Universal Forum of Cultures. Dozens of events over a one-week period were organized to commemorate the day.
