Surfers Against Sewage is looking for the next generation of activists between the ages of 11 and 18 to come together at the Youth, Ocean and Climate Summit, on 8 June for World Oceans Day.
The Youth, Ocean and Climate Summit is a one-day virtual event, that will cover a range of activities hosted by some of the nation’s leading, influential youth activists. The aim of the Summit is to produce a clear and impactful Youth Ocean & Climate Manifesto, outlining key, innovative solutions that will combat the ocean and climate crisis.
Surfers Against Sewage said: “It is important, now more than ever, that we come together to put pressure on governments and raise awareness of the effect climate change is having on the ocean. We also need to champion the role of the ocean as a solution to tackling the climate crisis.
“With top political and environmental leaders congregating in the UK this year, for two of the most substantial talks on the climate crisis, the G7 Summit and COP26, the Youth Ocean and Climate Summit will provide a platform for you [young people] to project your voice of power to the people in power.”
The Youth, Ocean and Climate Summit is accessible and open to anyone aged 11-18, who wants to make their voice heard. No prior experience or extensive knowledge of the ocean and climate crisis.
