The aim of SEA Pledge is to encourage people everywhere to lead a more sustainable life and take greater care of oceans and coasts. In making a pledge, people undertake to set and achieve goals that will reduce their negative environmental footprints and increase their positive environmental handprints. Each Pledge contributes to a petition that aims to re-focus international attention on the oceans by creating an International Year of Coasts and Oceans. The petition will be presented to the Global Forum for Oceans, Coasts and Islands on 3 December, 2011 at COP17 in Durban.
On Saturday, 3rd of December 2011, in the middle of COP 17, Sustainable Seas Trust is planning to have thousands of people involved in SEA Pledge activities. Click here for more information and to get involved.
