We have been nominated by the European Outdoor Conservation Association to receive funding to train our amazing network of Regional Rep volunteers!
Please vote for our project, it’s the 5th one down in the Water category.
We have 125 (We’ll be recruiting another 50 in 2018!) incredible volunteer Regional Reps around the UK’s Coastline. This funding will enable us to deliver 2 residential training events for them in 2018.
Our Regional Rep volunteers work with communities across the UK to rid our oceans & beaches of plastic pollution.
To make sure they are as effective as possible we would like to train 175 volunteers over two residential weekends to act as Regional Representatives for our coastline.
Each year these amazing people volunteer their time to organise over 350 beach cleans, remove up to 30 tonnes of plastic pollution from the UK’s beaches and engage over 10,000 local community volunteers.
As well as this they deliver environmental education talks at beach cleans to community groups, businesses, schools and universities encouraging everyone to go “Plastic Free”.
Together we will remove plastic pollution from our beaches, teach people about the damaging effects it has on habitats and species and stop it getting there in the first place. By working with communities, businesses & local government we aim to have “175 Plastic Free Communities” committed to reducing single use plastics.
So please VOTE FOR THIS AMAZING PROJECT NOW!
