At Surfers Against Sewage, our purpose is crystal clear.
We’re here to unite, empower and support individuals to protect the ocean and all it makes possible. And we do that in all sorts of ways.
Ocean health is vital to all of us, wherever we live. The food we eat and the water we drink. The places we work and play. The weather around us. The climate we depend on. Even the air we breathe. Society has been shaped by a healthy and stable ocean. For people to continue to thrive and live life to the fullest, the ocean must thrive too. The planet is at a tipping point, and change is needed. Now.
We have a vision that shapes everything we do. Thriving Ocean, Thriving People. A virtuous circle for a better world. It’s big. And challenging. But we know how to get there – by continuing to create Ocean Activists everywhere, so we can connect action on the ground with change at the top.
Change can’t happen without people power. As a campaigning organisation, we know building a passionate community of ocean lovers – who are willing to take a stand in whatever way they can – is the key to turning the tide.
For us, ‘everywhere’ isn’t just the places people live, but the worlds in which they operate. Schools. Businesses. Universities. Clubs. Factories. Boardrooms. Parliaments. Armchairs. Desktops. Beaches. Riverbanks. Pavements. We’re on a mission to engage all spheres of influence on a micro and macro level. And from paddle-outs to petitions, policy to protest, we’re making everywhere count.
Whether it’s shorelines or city streets, river banks or front benches, we’re working together to create a groundswell of change.
