SANDWATCH activities and reports

The Sandwatch Programme

Sandwatch is a volunteer network of children, youth and adults working together to enhance their beach environment and build resilience to climate change.
The programme, coordinated by the Sandwatch Foundation, began in 2001. Since then it has grown to include more than 30 member countries with schools and community groups actively monitoring changes in their beach environments, evaluating the problems and conflicts, and implementing sustainable activities to address these issues.
