Activities and learning

If you're keen to take action for your beach, here's some suggestions and support:

Carry out a litter pick

Physical distancing rules mean that big clean up events are not possible for the time being. But that's not to say that you and your household cannot take action yourselves! Whether you're a beach local or a visitor, you can play a small part to help keep the sand and sea clean for everyone to enjoy.

Head over to Clean Up Scotland for guidance and to get started.

                                                      

Do a litter count

Another way you can help the campaign this year is by helping to track the amounts and types of litter on the beach and helping build both a local and a national understanding of the issue. This is vital for monitoring and for local campaigning.

Diving in: understanding bathing water quality

As part of the Year of Coasts and Waters we have created a classroom resource for S1-6 pupils to help them learn about bathing water quality in their area and reflect on why their local beach is worth protecting in Young Reporters for the Environment report. 

We will be rolling this out to schools in campaign areas in collaboration with our Eco-Schools team. If you would like to find out more please get in touch.
