The aim is to encourage solutions to plastic pollution and prevent marine litter for a healthier ocean and a better future. So, under the Capturing Our Coast project, we've decided to show the film "A Plastic Ocean".

Come along to see this movie to understand more about what is going on in our oceans far and wide.

In this adventure documentary, Craig teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers, and they travel to twenty locations around the world over the next four years to explore the fragile state of our oceans, uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect"

This (free!) screening will be shown in Park Building (Room 2.23), King Henry 1 Street, Portsmouth,  PO1 2DZ
