'Ending the Era of Plastic Pollution'

A public talk by Louisa Casson, Greenpeace Oceans campaigner, at the University of Greenwich with Raphael Samuel History Centre

Greenpeace UK has been campaigning for healthy oceans for several decades. Oceans are not only home to incredible marine life, but provide food for billions of people and regulate our shared climate. While plastic has only been produced at scale since the 1950s, plastic pollution is now one of the greatest threats facing our oceans.

Two weeks to go before our first seminar of the new 2017-2018 collaboration with the Coastal Marine Research Group!

"The Future of the Ocean: Health, Wealth and Biodiversity"
with Professor Steve Fletcher

Monday 30th October at 6pm

There is increasing appreciation of the critical role the oceans play in human health and sustainable economic growth. As is well known, the ocean provides the basic building blocks to support life through its regulation of climate and global temperature, but we are now also appreciating the role of the ocean in supporting the quality of our health through providing new drugs from the deep sea and spaces for relaxation, de-stressing, and personal restoration. In parallel, the OECD (2016) has estimated that the global ocean economy currently supports 350m jobs and has a value in the order of US$1.5 trillion per annum (2–3% of the world's gross domestic product). Yet there is a strong belief that the wealth derived from the ocean can be increased still further through 'blue growth' and 'blue economy' policies that provide new opportunities to tap into ocean and coastal resources. Biodiversity lies at the heart of ocean health and wealth, yet its place in ocean governance remains ambiguous, particularly in areas beyond national jurisdiction. This presentation will explore these themes and consider how we can navigate towards a future for the ocean that supports health, wealth and biodiversity.
