Protecting the ocean is child's play
Who said we can't protect the oceans and still have fun at the same time? Surfrider Europe has compiled a glossary of terms that will help strengthen your game plan.
Every game is about action. Some actions lead to victory, others are blocked. To follow the actions won, lost and in progress of Coastal Defenders, it's here.
In this game, there is no need to bluff or keep your identity secret to win the game. Feel free to share your actions on social networks and around you.
To win the game, you have to play together. In the end, everyone wins or everyone loses. Join the Surfrider community, to make a difference together.
Let's stop abandoning in nature what we don't play with anymore. Instead, why not dispose of them in the proper bins (sorting or composting for example) or maybe you can ﬁnd someone else who wants to play with them. Do you want to participate in a waste collection on the beach? Find out more about Oceanes Initiatives.
This completes a basic game. What if you were to become the creator of the game and come up with new actions / measures to protect the oceans? Out of inspiration to do it yourself and stop buying packaged products, we've added an extension to our DIY.
Beware of frustration after participating in a waste collection on your favorite beach and you return to ﬁnd some the next day. Why not turn this frustration into action? Change the behaviour around you so that you don't have to start collecting rubbish all over again. Click here to discover the EMR citizen engagement booklet.
At your next gamers' meeting or games festival, think about opting for the gourd in terms of goodies? You kill two birds with one stone: here you are with a collector's souvenir of your favourite game/event and effortlessly avoiding the plastic bottle when you travel.
When you practice water sports, you run the risk of getting bombarded by floating waste or worse, ending up with various microplastic residues stuck in your hair. So to avoid unpleasant surprises, let's go ﬁnd and reduce waste at the source! This is the purpose of the Riverine Input project.
Sometimes you have to use your imagination to win the game. To raise awareness about protecting the oceans, too. That's what the Surfrider Campus educational area is all about.
Protecting the oceans is a real parlor game. So how can we explain it to children in a fun way? Click here to (re)discover Climax, our web series on climate change.
This is an international web platform for participatory ﬁnancing. Many board games are ﬁnanced through it. What if today you helped ﬁnance an ocean protection project by making a donate or organizing a collection ?
Said of a board game adept. If you respect all our rules of the game, you will soon become a true defender of the ocean.
