Sustainablitiy Education Programme
SA Sailing, in partnership with World Sailing and the World Sailing Trust and 11th Hour Racing, have released a co-branded Sustainability Education Programme, developed with The Ocean Race, for sailing clubs and parents as part of its Agenda 2030 - sailing's commitment to global sustainability.
The Sustainability Education Programme materials were developed with The Ocean Race, capitalising on the success of their own programme in the 2017-2018 edition of the race, and have been split into six topics each comprising of a booklet, trainer's guide and worksheet for age groups 6-8, 8-10 and 10-12.
Sustainability Education Programme resources are free to use and are broken down into six topics:
Topic 1: Race with World Sailing
Topic 2: Resources & Climate Change
Topic 3: Navigating Wildlife & Biodiversity
Topic 4: Reducing Waste
Topic 5: Oil & Fuel
Topic 6: Boat Cleaning & Maintenance
The materials will ensure the next generation of sailors learn about wider environmental issues that can affect the sport as well as those areas where the sport can make a positive impact.
The theme throughout is combining key sailing terminology with environmental issues whilst learning about some of the exciting events and boats in the sport that can inspire the next generation of sailors.
World Sailing's Sustainability Agenda 2030 outlines how the sport will contribute to the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals. The Sustainability Agenda 2030 is split up into World Sailing's six main operational areas with a total of 56 different targets. The targets range from participation to gender equality, water quality to single use plastic.
Supported by the International Olympic Committee and World Sailing's partners, delivery of the Sustainability Agenda 2030 will be ongoing with various timeframes for achievement of the targets.
