In February, Finisterre UK is hosting Waves for Change Founders, Tim Conibear and Apish Tshetsha to explore their global efforts of removing coastal barriers and engaging local at-risk children in a mental health intervention through surf therapy. Joining them is PhD candidate Jamie Marshall from `Stoked Research’. Jamie is the first PhD candidate to study surfing as a therapy with a focus post-conflict, developing countries.
The team will share stories, films and insights from their travels and work across Africa to connect more and more communities to the ocean. Since the start of 2019 the team has helped 11 communities in remote locations around the world open and scale locally owned Surf Therapy programmes. By the end of the year, this number will be closer to 20. Their work includes coastlines in Somalia, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
