Surfers Against Sewage

Hugo Tagholm is Chief Executive of the national marine conservation and campaigning charity Surfers Against Sewage (SAS). The charity takes action from the beach front to the front benches of Parliament, where it unites a voice for the ocean through its Ocean Conservation All Party Parliamentary Group. It mobilises over 100,000 community beach and river clean volunteers annually and has been instrumental in helping introduce and enforce new government legislation to protect our seas. He is an environmentalist, campaigner, surfer, charity professional and a TEDx speaker. This year he will be awarded an Honorary Doctorate for his services to Marine Conservation by one of the UK’s leading Universities. Twitter: @hugoSAS
