A group of surfers who wanted to preserve their playground created Surfrider Europe in 1990. Grass-roots activism to protect our oceans and coasts is at the core of the organisation. Surfrider Foundation Europe is a non-profit organisation whose purpose is to protect and showcase the importance of lakes, rivers, the ocean, waves, and coastlines. It currently has over 15,000 members and is active across 12 countries through its volunteer-run branches.
For almost 30 years, Surfrider Foundation Europe has been taking action as a recognized authority in three areas of expertise: marine litter, water quality and public health, coastal management and climate change. Volunteers engaging in local field activism are the driving force of Surfrider. Whether they are running local volunteer branches or taking part in the environmental campaigns of the organisation, they are Surfrider’s strongest presence in the field and they implement our various programmes locally: awareness and education, events, and rallying.
At this time, over 2,000 volunteers are taking action every day in 49 local branches in 12 European countries. Join us in our fight to protect the oceans and coasts of today and tomorrow. Help us to drastically reduce plastic waste, move away from fossil fuels, fight against climate change and its impacts, and fight marine pollution and the damage being done to oceans, beaches and waves. Surfrider Europe acts on a daily basis to fight against damage to the coastal environment and its users.
