Ocean Recovery and Human Health
In the run up to COP26 and with the return of the Environment Bill the parliamentary calendar is getting increasingly busy and we have therefore made the decision to postpone the event until after COP26.
We are in the process of confirming a new date to ensure the event can be as useful as possible for parliamentarians.
Join us in discussing the benefits of ocean recreation and blue space access for individual and societal health and wellbeing. We will also talk about the integral role the ocean can play in the UK health care system and provide further reasoning behind protecting the ocean.
We will excitingly be joined by the UKs most successful female Olympic sailor Hannah Mills, fresh from winning a Gold at Tokyo 2020! In addition, the CEO and Founder of the Wave Project, Joe Taylor, will be joining us to discuss life-saving surf therapy and the power of the ocean to improve mental health. Dr Matthew White will be providing us with valuable insight on how protecting the ocean protects many of the most vulnerable communities. Last but not least, Hugo Tagholm, will present the results from Surfers Against Sewage Ocean Recovery Report and will discuss the benefits of a safeguarded ocean for future generations.
