GSA Chattan has been established with Hideyuki Fukui as team captain. A resident of Okinawa, Hideyuki attended the Team Captain's meeting in Okinawa in March leading to his decision to join the Ecoflag Movement.
Hideyuki is a beach lifeguard and sees the condition of the beaches on a daily basis. He says that 'no matter how many times you pick up garbage and cigarette butts, there is always more', so he wants to educate young people as part of the junior life saving curriculum so that kids everywhere will want to protect the coastal environment, while they enjoy the ocean in safety.
This brings the number of GSA Teams to 55 in 23 countries.
