To achieve measurable improvements in the state of our seas, waters, beaches, marine biodiversity and fish stocks through changes in government policy, industry practice and individual behaviour.
(a) Volunteering – in the sense of acting out of self-initiative, without seeking material reward and for the benefit of civil society, as a method and a statement for social change, whilst never competing with paid labour nor seeking to contribute to strike-breaking.
(b) Respect for the Environment, Ocean, waters and the ecosystem of which we are a part and upon which we are dependent.
(c) Inclusion – to be open and inclusive to all individuals who share the aims and objectives of the movement, without regard to gender, race, colour, religion, nationality, social status or political views and any other possible grounds for discrimination.
(d) Empowerment – empowering communities, adult and young, youth people to understand and act to transform the social, cultural and economic structures that affect their lives at all levels.
(e) Co-operation – with local communities as well as other local, national and international actors to strengthen the positive potential within civil society as a whole.
We believe that the key drivers for change are to inform and involve people, communities and stakeholders in our work and influence decision makers and businesses through public engagement and collaboration, as well as through direct advocacy and campaigns.You can read about how successful we have been in achieving our goals in our most recent AnnualReport and Review.
