Secretary of State John Kerry hosts the "Our Ocean" Conference in Washington, D.C. on June 16-17, 2014. The conference aims to raise ocean conservation as a critical foreign policy issue. Whether you live on the coast or hours from the closest beach, we all depend upon the ocean. Here are five ways that you can participate in the conference -- no matter where you are!
2. Watch the live webcast of the two-day conference on state.gov/ourocean or the State Department's YouTube Channel (Day 1 and Day 2). Check out the conference agenda for the full schedule of events and list of speakers.
3. Post photos showing what the ocean means to you to your favorite social media platform using the hashtag #OurOcean2014, or add the photos to the "Show Your Love of Our Ocean" group on Flickr.
