Surfers Against Sewage has for many years delivered a broad education programme, through schools presentations, campaign tours, beach clean initiatives, educational talks and the numerous digital and print resources we’ve produced, some even following the national schools syllabus. So, as an organisation, SAS has a long history of educating, in informal and formal settings, helping all ages to better understand the marine and coastal environment, and hopefully inspiring new generations of campaigners and environmental activists.
The Seas For Life education programme covers SAS’s latest campaigns on water quality, marine litter, climate change, toxic chemicals, shipping and coastal wave protection. It also addresses the concept of citizenship and how students can have a positive impact on the marine environment to contribute to safeguarding fisheries, oceans, waves and beaches, and other coastal assets.
The SAS school presentation is delivered in classrooms & assemblies, and includes a bespoke presentation and can interactive environmental board game ‘Marineopoly’. The lessons cover all of SAS’s latest initiatives including campaigns on sewage pollution, marine litter, climate change, toxic chemicals, shipping and wave protection.
The key National Curriculum learning outcomes that the Seas For Life programme covers are:
- Humans and other animals.
- Living things and their environment.
Citizenship and PSHE:
- Developing a healthy, safer lifestyle.
- Preparing to play an active role as citizens.
