As paddlers throughout the World, we all share a common concern for the quality of water in the world. The International Canoe Federation has partnered withPaddle For The Planet.org to support their one day global paddling relay in support of conservation. The ICF is committed to raising environmental awareness of waterways and taking actions to improve marine environmental conditions.Paddle for the Planet

Here’s how you can get involved on June 1:

  1. Go for a paddle on June 1, 2014 and dedicate your kilometres by posting them on the Paddle For The Planet Facebook Page.
    Example:
    I supported #PaddleForThePlanet by paddling 10 kilometres to raise awareness about the importance of clean water @PlanetCanoe @CanoeKayakCAN
  2. Plan a club clean-up, shore-line clean-up or other environmental initiative
  3. Build awareness about clean water by talking to your friends, fellow paddlers, and people in your community. Blog, Tweet and post all about it to let the world know clean water is important to you.

Show the power of paddlers united worldwide by getting involved!
