See Bin Sea Change

The University is hosting a special event to raise awareness of marine plastic pollution and solutions to tackle the problems on Sunday 29 July.

See Bin, Sea Change is a free event, open to the public, to raise awareness of the ongoing plastic pollution issue that faces our oceans. This is the second See Bin, Sea Change following a first successful event back in December 2017.

From 10am to 4pm in the University’s Portland Building, there will be talks by world-leading experts from the Universities of Portsmouth and Southampton explaining how we are detecting micro plastics in our food chain and in the environment, and how we can avoid single use plastic in our lives. There will also be a talk from David Jones, diver and cameraman of ‘A Plastic Ocean’ who will be talking about his experiences of finding plastic in the sea.

There will be a Kid’s Zone with fun activities for younger environmentalists, artworks and displays from Southern Water, Surfers against Sewage, Final Straw Solent, Zero waste Portsmouth, LUSH and Wild Tyme.

There will be free refreshments available throughout the day.
