WORLD OCEAN DAY  8 JUNE

The World Ocean Day theme for this year is "The Ocean: Life and Livelihood". It is a reminder of the important role of the ocean in everyday life. The ocean covers 70% of the planet and produces at least 50% of the planet's oxygen. Ocean based industries provide millions of jobs and the ocean is also a significant source of food and medicines. There is no end of benefits to humanity and we need to learn to protect and preserve the ocean as we are currently taking more from the ocean than can be replenished. 

Please check the website below and our library resources to find out more about the impact of human actions on the ocean and what can be done to protect it.

MEN'S HEALTH WEEK  15-20 JUNE

Men's Health Week raises awareness of the health issues that affect men. The subject of men's mental wellbeing has been silenced for a long time when actually men suffer with mental health issues as much as women. Stereotypes of strong men who never cry or ask for help have put massive pressure on men. Luckily this has been changing for the past few years and many men have started talking openly about their health issues. However there is still lots of work to do as unfortunately the number of men who struggle on their own is still high.  

Check the website below and our library resources to learn more about men's health.

FATHER'S DAY  19 JUNE

Father's Day has been celebrated in catholic countries of Europe since the Middle Ages. In America Father's day was founded by Sonora Smart Dodd in 1910 and became the inspiration for Father's Day in the UK. The day is held on various dates across the world but the idea is still the same. We honour fathers and father figures on that day to show them our appreciation.
