Seven For The Sea aims to create a change of thinking within Vietnam around rubbish especially beaches. We’re intending to use our passion for the outdoors to attract funds used for into activations and education.
Founded by a 10 year Australian expat – Seven for the Sea or Bảy Giờ Cho Biển aims to change the culture of destroying the Vietnamese coastline (and rivers, streets, countryside, etc) via education and action. We are hoping to raise funds which will be put towards clean-up events focusing on involving and educating Vietnamese Youth who will be the drivers of future changes.
Anyone who lives or has extensively travelled in Vietnam will know what an incredible place it is an incredible place with incredible people, culture, food, sights, experiences and more. They’ll also know rubbish is a massive problem. Whilst the human challenges of a developing country are well documented this unsafe, unhealthy environment will cause even bigger human issues and limit the emergence of Vietnam as one of the world’s most successful countries.
This problem is impacting livelihoods, food supply, wildlife and more. After years of shrugging and assuming this is just how things are we’ve decided to try make a difference. Hopefully with your support we can grow that difference into something that can seriously contribute to this fantastic countries ongoing development.
Raise funds and awareness – We are looking to announce our challenge on April 17, 2021 whereby anyone can join us to partake in your favorite activities for 7 hours for the cause. Donors can sponsor any and all of our participants raising funds that will be used to…
Actively make a difference and educate – We will facilitate clean up days at some watersports popular beaches in Vietnam covering the costs of kids transport, clean up equipment and a shirt, hat, fun exercise book to make sure the kids take away some memories and knowledge from the event. Short term some beaches will be much cleaner, but long term we hope to sew that seed that convinces kids to take pride in their surrounds and hopefully convince others that it’s not on to trash Vietnam.
