A Plastic Ocean

World Ocean Day is on the 8th of June. This year's theme is " Our Oceans, Our Future"

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". A brilliant movie that uncovers alarming truths about plastics and shows real working solutions that can be put into effect. Come along to see this movie to understand more about what is going on in our oceans far and wide.

"PLASTIC OCEAN begins when journalist Craig Leeson, searching for the elusive blue whale, discovers plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean. 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

Seats in the lecture theatre are first come first serve. The movie will start at 7:00 but please arrive from 6:30 pm. The movie running time is 1 hr 42 mins.
