Hugo Tagholm to Speak at SMTC

Date published: 08 February 2019

With less than three weeks until the big day, and a few tickets remaining, ocean advocate Hugo Tagholm has signed up to speak at Scotland's Marine Tourism Conference on Wednesday 6th March 2019.

Hugo is Chief Executive of the national marine conservation and campaigning charity Surfers Against Sewage. He is an environmentalist, campaigner, surfer, charity professional and a TEDx speaker.

Surfers Against Sewage has evolved from a single-issue pressure group into one of the country's best loved marine conservation charities. Driven by people who actively use our oceans and beaches, it represents over 350,000 regular supporters and now mobilises the biggest beach clean community in the UK, with some 75,000 volunteers annually contributing over 200,000 hours of time to protecting beaches nationwide. The organisation’s priority issue today is plastic pollution, which is frequently top of the global environmental agenda, as the Blue Planet recently documented.

The charity empowers over 450 Plastic Free Communities around the UK, from Hackney to the Highlands, representing millions of citizens.  Internationally recognised, the charity takes its message of ocean optimism to the UN Oceans Conference in New York, the Our Oceans Conference and other platforms for ocean health.  

Hear his inspirational message of empowering people to heal our oceans at Scotland's Marine Tourism Conference on 6th March 2019 at The Beacon Arts Centre, Greenock.
