Volunteers Needed for Volvo Ocean Race ‘Green Team’!

Volunteers are needed for the Volvo Ocean Race ‘Green Team‘ 27th May – 10th June.

Sign-up closes on Tuesday 15/05/2018

They are looking for people who are passionate about the environment, recycling and most importantly clean seas and healthy oceans.  (No sailing experience required!)

Tasks will include:

► Talking to Race Village visitors about the issue of plastic pollution.
► Discussing what can be done to stop plastic pollution and what they can do
► Encouraging them to sign up to a commitment to Clean Seas and pledge to reduce their own plastic footprint.
► Encouraging people to refill at water refill stations and stop buying single-use plastic bottles.
► Getting people to write out pledges on a pledge board and taking photos using our fun and interactive selfie-booth.
► Helping people get the recyclable and compostable plates and cups into the right bin
► Use fishing nets to catch floating plastic

All volunteers will be provided with free lunch and official event uniform.

You don’t have to volunteer for the whole 15 days!  Just two shifts is the minimum.
