Please join the community as we stand for clean oceans and renewable energy. (see attached flyer) We will gather at the ocean by the Emerald Isle Pier at 11:50. We encourage you to ride your bike or walk but if you drive, the parking fee is $15 and refundable if you are there less than 30 minutes. At noon, we will join hands for 15 minutes. A wonderful opportunity to show your support, bring your kids and grandkids and get them involved early in helping to nurture and protect our Earth.
This event is worldwide and is growing every year. Hands Across the Sand / Land, founded in 2010, grew into an international movement after the BP oil disaster in April of that year. People came together to join hands, forming symbolic barriers against spilled oil and to stand against the impacts of other forms of extreme energy.
- This isn’t about politics – it’s about protection of our oceans and marine life, our coastal environment, our coastal economies our mountains, valleys and meadows.
- The Hands Across the Sand/Land events are aimed at steering America’s energy policy away from its dependence on fossil fuels and towards clean energy. We are drawing an imaginary line in the sand and on our lands, which make for a powerful image to say NO to dirty fuels and YES to clean energy.
