We’d really like your feedback!
It’s thanks to the growing support of a nationwide community of SAS members that Surfers Against Sewage can undertake and deliver so many successful campaigns, from grassroots community beach cleans through to campaigning for better water quality in Westminster. If you are a member of SAS we’d really appreciate your feedback and thoughts on Surfers Against Sewage, from current campaigns to membership materials and products in our ethical surf store. By taking part you will help us to improve and extend our current environmental campaigns & community initiatives, enhance your involvement with SAS and help us bring new members on board. The more members we have, the further our message will reach and the greater the impact we can have to protect waves, oceans and beaches for everyone.
Please help us build a more sustainable future for our coastline and those that spend time enjoying it by answering a few short questions today – SAS MEMBERS’ SURVEY 2014.
Thanks to your support this year, Surfers Against Sewage has ambitious plans including:
- The publication of a new report on marine litter setting out Surfers Against Sewage’s 5 year action plan to drastically reduce the amount of litter washing up on UK shores by 2020.
- Conducting a water user health survey with the European Centre for the Environment & Human Health (University of Exeter Medical School) to highlight the risks of exposure to sewage polluted waters.
- Mobilising at least 5,000 community beach clean volunteers across all 27 coastal counties.
- The formation of an All Party Parliamentary Group chaired by Stephen Gilbert MP to address our Protect Our Waves campaign concerns.
- The expansion of the Sewage Alert Service to cover even more popular beaches to protect surfers, beach users and bathers from potentially harmful sewage pollution. Including beaches in Scotland and Northern Ireland in the Sewage Alert Service.
- The expansion of the Regional Reps network to include 50 locations nationwide.
Today also sees the launch of a new digital Pipeline to complement the bi-annual printed magazine, which will be in SAS member’s email inboxes at the beginning of every month. If you haven’t received it, we probably don’t have your correct email address, so please get in touch with Membership Coordinator Jess North on [email protected] and we’ll make sure you receive it.
If you’re not currently a member and would like to support the campaigns, please renew your membership today – together we can do even more to protect waves, oceans and beaches for everyone.
Thank you for your support! It make a big difference.
As a small charity with a national influence, SAS relies on every membership donation to retain a strong campaigning position helping drive water quality improvements, reduce the amount of marine litter on our beaches, and give the water sports community a credible voice on the environmental & health issues that affect you most. With so many active campaigns, SAS needs your support more than ever.
