You will also be introduced to climate change and how it affects the ocean and us as sailors, as well as the use of resources (like water, energy and purchased products) in a sailing club.
You will also find out how using resources effectively reduce the impact of climate change and about the circular economy and how this helps to reduce the impacts of climate change.
