At the end of the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Sandwatch was nominated as one of 25 successful ESD projects from around the world to present their work at the World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development in Japan in 2014
Sandwatch seeks to modify the lifestyle and habits of children, youth and adults on a community-wide basis and to develop awareness of the fragile nature of the marine and coastal environment and the need to use it wisely. It is an educational process through which school students and community members learn and work together to scientifically monitor their beach environments, so as to critically evaluate the problems and conflicts. They then develop and implement sustainable activities to address these issues, enhance the beach environment and build resilience to climate change.
Read our “Most Significant Change Stories” to see how Sandwatch is influencing people’s behaviour to care for the beach environment.
