We already know how important the Ocean is for our mental and physical wellbeing, yet our Generation Sea Blueprint Survey has revealed just how many of you have missed the coastal environments during the lockdown-months.
As we start to get a little more freedom to move around and begin heading back to the beaches, it is vital we do this in a socially-responsible way to keep ourselves safe, protect our emergency services and help restore the Ocean.
Luckily, we have just launched The Socially-Responsible Beach Guide to allow you to do just that. The guide will follow your journey to the Ocean providing handy tips on how to keep safe when you’re beach bound, at the beach, and whilst your heading home. So, after checking Government advice, you can now download your own copy and get ready to dive back into the water.
Amy Slack, Head of Campaigns & Policy at Surfers Against Sewage says:
We have all been missing the Ocean during lockdown and are excited to have the sand beneath our toes again. As we head back to the beach we must do so in a socially responsible way, enjoying our natural environment whist staying safe and respecting those around us. Our Socially Responsible Beach Guide provides some helpful ways to do just that! The watery world is so important to our mental and physical health and wellbeing, we must make sure we can enjoy, respect and protect it.
