It is within each of us that lies the possibility of collective action. Only the involvement of all will allow us to face the environmental issues we are confronted to.

Sea Smart Land

Our Sea Smart Land (SSL) programme sees wooded landscapes and tree-lined streets as solutions to water pollution. As the most effective pollution filter, greenery is being increased in urban areas. This is why Surfrider Europe wants all public and professional actors to find out about Ocean Friendly Gardens.
