Ocean Initiatives 2016: NO BREAK FOR TRASH
Slide Surfcamp unterstützt die Kampagne von Surfrider Foundation Europe und Ocean Initiatives.A strange phenomenon has been observed in recent years along the European coastlines and on the ocean floors. A worrying tendency is emerging, as some appear to be taking an undeserved break. To spoil the holidays of this trash, Surfrider is calling upon all citizens to come and take part in its flagship programme on the first spring weekend: the Ocean Initiatives.
Everyone can organise or join an existing litter collection in their area, whether they are in a town or on the coast, near a lake or river! Through this campaign, tens of thousands of people are made aware of waste-related issues every year. Today, we can no longer just ignore the litter that is invading our coasts and oceans. Surfrider is giving everyone the opportunity to play a vital role and to help tackle this major problem. We are the primary cause of this pollution, and it is now time that we become part of the solution.
To organise or join a litter collection, simply go to www.initiativesoceanes.org. All organisers receive a free 2016 Ocean Initiative Kit full of tools to help them set up their events. For those who would like to participate in an existing event, there is a full list of all litter collections to make it easier for you to find and register with an Ocean Initiative in your area.
Over to you! Participate in the Ocean Initiatives from the 17th to the 20th of March!
