Sunrise Sea Swim For Climate

Posted by Claudia Tormey on June 17, 2019 at 10:42 AM

Friends of the earth invites you to

We are organising our very first climate movement sea swim, and we would love you to join us!

Those of us who care about environmental issues tend to spend a lot of time indoors planning, organising, emailing, going to meetings, talks and so on. Sometimes we forget to stop, and enjoy the beauty of nature - the very thing we are working to protect. And, spending time in nature has been proven to have positive effects on our mental and physical wellbeing.

Join us to welcome the sun, from the sea, on the longest, brightest day of the year - Summer Solstice!

When? 5:00am on Friday June 21st

Where? Seapoint beach, Dublin

Register for swim

Because of climate change, our seas are in danger - our entire planet is in danger. We want to mark this occasion by making a promise to nature - to do whatever is within our power and rise to the greatest challenge ever faced by our species.

Whether you are part of a climate action group, have been making positive changes in your life or simply care about what's going on, we want you to join us. Let's get lots of people who care about our planet's future to come together - community is an important ingredient for any movement for change.

So let’s rise early, and jump into the sea!

Friends of the earth invites you to

Bring hot drinks, snacks, warm clothes, hot water bottle (if you want to go all out) and good vibes. Sunrise is at 04.57am so arrive a little early if you want to see it!

Please note, sea swimming is at your own risk - there will be no shore support that early in the morning. Not everyone who comes has to swim, you can dip your toe if that makes you happy. Wetsuits optional too – we don’t judge.

Considering it’s very early, the chances of public transport running is slim. So if you are cycling or driving please register here at this link to connect with others so you can cycle together or car pool.

If you can’t make it to Seapoint - why not plan your own special date with nature wherever you are! It’s good for you.
