Surfers Against Sewage’s Protect Our Waves (POW) Petition will take centre stage at the 3rd Global Wave Conference in Mexico next week. The Global Wave Conference is a gathering of wave protection NGOs and academics from across the world, including SAS, the Surfrider Foundation, WiLDCOAST and the Save the Waves Coalition. This bi-annual conference helps connect wave protection movements and organisations from around the globe to discuss the issues facing our oceans, waves, beaches and communities, and share current campaign approaches and best practice for solutions.
UK surfers and those from across the globe need precious surf spots & waves protecting from inappropriate developments, from damaging levels of pollution & marine litter, and restricted access. SAS continues to be one of the leading voices, protecting UK waves and representing the surfing community from the beach to the boardroom.
SAS Campaign Director Andy Cummins will be presenting the POW petition to the Global Wave Conference delegates and encouraging the global surf protection movement to help support this vital petition. Make sure you are part of this movement by signing the petition at www.protectourwaves.org.uk
SAS Executive Director Hugo Tagholm will be summing up the conference up on the final day, with the Directors of Surfrider International and WiLDCOAST. There will be plenty of Protect Our Waves issues covered and SAS has an ambitious programme of POW actions to deliver throughout the conference.
