ABOUT SUSTAINABLE COASTLINES
Sustainable Coastlines is a dynamic, multi award-winning New Zealand charity that has successfully coordinated a string of groundbreaking high-profile coastal clean-up events in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. All projects are focused on the delivery of an educational, fun, worthwhile experience with valuable results that are open to all sectors of the community. In a short time, this has already resulted in positive, real and long-term changes.
With hundreds of events held since early 2008 Sustainable Coastlines have motivated volunteers to remove huge hauls of rubbish from coastlines around New Zealand and the Pacific. Through direct participation and extensive media coverage they have raised large-scale awareness about the challenges of coastline protection and presented communities with solutions to successfully address them.
KEEN have awarded their Love Your Water program on Winter 2015 with a $10,000 grant as part of KEEN Effect program. Designed to support projects that fuel people’s passion for protecting the environment and promoting responsible outdoor participation, the 2015 Spring KEEN Effect cycle received more than 800 applications. KEEN awarded seven, $10,000 grants to organisations around the world, and Sustainable Coastlines is proud to be one of them, now for the second year running!
