The University of Portsmouth will be hosting See Bin, Sea Change at the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries, on the 1st of December at Eldon Building. See Bin, Sea Change is a free event, open to both the public and students, the event aims to raise awareness of the ongoing plastic pollution problem that currently faces the UK, as well celebrating the introduction of the UK’s first Sea Bin, in Portsmouth Harbour.
The University of Portsmouth and Capturing our Coast have formed a fantastic list of contributors and attendees, all helping to raise awareness of the ongoing plastic pollution issue that faces our oceans. Confirmed speakers include, from the University, the National Oceanographic Centre in Southampton, as well as Professor Richard Thompson, from Plymouth University, who are doing talks to the public, followed by a Q&A session. There will be giveaways, a questionnaire about plastic consumption, a world research wall, and a pledge wall for the public to express how they are reducing their plastic consumption. CCI Faculty’s Matt Smith will also be on board, to work with local schools to create puppets from recycled plastic.
