Blu Hope


Today we look at how we are addressing the challenges of plastic (and other) pollution facing our oceans. In looking towards solutions – we need to understand the ‘problem’. Our webinars aim to inspire both thinking and action! Join panel discussions of beach clean-up groups who are taking waste off our beaches. Hear how policy and practice in business is now responding to enhance recyclability and reduce waste getting into the environment. We also look at the latest ocean innovations and plastic waste recycling technologies that can help get us to a ‘circular economy’, and hear from scientists working on the frontline assessing the impacts, and what we need to do to stop pollution at source.
