The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) is the UK’s leading marine charity. We work to increase awareness of the growing need to protect our seas, shores and wildlife for future generations in the face of pollution, overfishing and climate change. Our aim is to reduce litter in our seas and on our beaches, achieve better protection for marine wildlife and habitats and encourage people to only eat sustainable seafood.



We pledge to provide opportunities for young people to connect with our ocean, explore the natural world and identify some of the issues our environment is facing. We will create projects, resources, experiences and events which encourage young people to take social action in response to their experiences and will support them to develop their own ideas as to how we can reduce negative environmental impacts. We believe strongly in the power of young people and will take every opportunity to facilitate genuine social action in relation to our work to conserve and protect our ocean.
