Earth Day (April 22) - time for a Windsurfing NZ constitution addition?

Earth Day Network’s mission is to broaden and diversify the environmental movement worldwide and to mobilize it as the most effective vehicle to build a healthy, sustainable environment, address climate change, and protect the Earth for future generations.

Is it time we added a more specific objective to our constitution? 3.2 includes environmental care, but is that enough? I think we could strengthen our objectives in this area, recognising not only the importance to our sport, but also our future as a planet. much of the work I find myslef involved in now on behalf of the association relates to environmental issues; access, conflict/competition of use, impact of commercial development, contamination ...

As a group I feel we could and should do more ... interested in your thoughts. Email me or comment on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/windsurfingnz/
