We are thrilled to welcome Dr Easkey Britton to the MarSocSci Webinar Series to launch her new book '50 Things to do by the Sea'!

Join us as we talk about the book, about the importance of connecting people to the ocean, coasts and seas, and how we think about the spaces for our health and wellbeing.

Combining fun-filled coastal activities with eco-awareness, this is the ultimate guide to enjoying days by the sea. The country is preparing for a summer of staycations – and with over 30,000 km of coastline in the UK, many of us are set on spending some time by the sea. In 50 Things to Do by the Sea, surfer and marine social scientist Dr. Easkey Britton suggests new and exciting ways to enjoy yourself in and out of the water.

Sharing her life-long passion, Easkey shows both what the sea can do for us, and what we can do for the sea. Activities range from beachcombing and rockpooling, to making and flying a kite, seabird watching and searching out bioluminescence. Mindful activities include sound mapping and creating a beach mandala. It’s also a guide to how to stay safe and how to be a responsible sea visitor, from understanding the tides and currents, to beach clean-ups and sustainable foraging.

This timely book will show you the benefits of doing things by and for the sea - and how those benefits can spill over into your daily life. With tips and know-how throughout, accompanied with step-by-step illustrations, readers will be fully equipped to make the most of the seaside and to be the hero our seas need.
