Did you know that 80% of the changes in our societies are decided within the European Union? This is the case for environmental policies and in particular the protection of oceans, the coast and its users. That is why Surfrider Foundation Europe is launching the “Vote for the ocean” campaign. The objective? Hold election candidates accountable. Surfers, divers, sailors, swimmers or simply lovers of oceans and beaches, this campaign is yours: seize it, get informed and above all mobilise your family and friends to vote.
To vote in the European elections is to make your voice heard and to help shape the society of tomorrow.
