Find out about the impact of plastic in our oceans and what can be done to save our seas
Every minute, the equivalent of a truck load of plastic is dumped into our ocean. Plastic, heralded by many as a miracle material, is now chocking fish, accumulating in their tissues, and slowly seeping down food chains.
Can we reverse the damage already done by dumping plastics? Are we able to alter our plastic consumption enough to preserve biodiversity? Or is it too late to save our seas?
Speakers and more information about the event will be released closer to the time.
The doors will open at approximately 18:30, with a prompt start at 19:00. There will be time for questions after the talk.
