Sailing Club for Peace & environmental awareness

Hi....
We will be leaving the US in May for an indefinite time period (beginning in the South Pacific)......We are looking to connect with or apply for membership in clubs or organizations that promote global peace, humanitarian efforts, and/or environmental awareness. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated!

Best of luck on your cruise!

I don’t think you’ll find any single organization that meets all of your criteria, but the SSCA may come close.

The Seven Seas Cruising Association (SSCA) supports humanitarian and environmental programs, and are known for their Clean Wake* policy.

* "To leave a clean wake is to show respect for others and for our environment so that those who follow in our wake will be warmly welcomed. It is our most cherished tradition.”
