"Green Sail is responsible for leading initiatives that protect and promote sustainable tourism along coastal communities, and on our seas and oceans." - Grant Seuren, Director
Green Sail works closely with nautical tourism providers to initiate grassroots solutions to sustainability problems. Through education, hands-on programs and our network of partners and members, the Green Sail movement promotes the concept of sustainable eco tourism, with the aim of helping to protect the seas and oceans we rely so heavily on.
Through our partnership programs, we work with charter companies, marinas, institutions, environmentally friendly businesses, and individuals by providing informative and educative activities and materials.
Since 2016 we have been running events that continue to have a positive effect on local tourism and the operating environments of our Partners. These initiatives include the work we do with partners to educate them about sustainability, online courses, Partner Flag concept, coastal cleaning and waste reduction, our Recycling program & Eco Walk Tours.
We partner with Charter companies, Marinas and Tourism companies to set environmental policies, provide educational materials to stakeholders and support their sustainability projects.
Our team of Volunteers, Interns and International Ambassadors help us to spread the Green Sail message far and wide! These passionate individuals have a strong interest in sustainability and volunteer their time and skills to various projects and initiatives.
Education is the very first step to achieving change. In addition to the on-the-ground education we offer via our partner programs, we provide a range of free online courses and thought-leadership blogs on our Knowledge Hub that you can use to promote environmental sustainability.
