Summer Solstice Sea Swim Photos

Friends of the earth invites you to

It felt surreal, it was magic!

Looking back at our very first climate movement sea swim, it seems as though it could have been a dream. We really didn't know what to expect, so we were blown away at the huge turn out. Some people said there could have been 200 people at it! Thankfully, it was a beautiful morning, the sky was clear and the sea was calm. We're already talking about the next one, so stay tuned for updates soon!

Here's a few photos, taken from Young Friends of the Earth member, Reamonn McLoughlin who was kind enough to join and capture some of the morning's event. Check out Reamonn's Photography page on Facebook here at this link.

Sunrise Sea Swim For Climate

Posted on June 17, 2019 by Claudia Tormey

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
