'A Plastic Ocean'
In conjunction with A Plastic Ocean Foundation (and kindly supported by the Warwick Midlands Professional Network), a free screening of their award winning film 'A Plastic Ocean', and a panel discussion about plastics and the problems associated with them, is being hosted at the University of Warwick main campus, WBS Room 0.004, Thursday 9th May - 6-9pm.
The aim of the event is to bring the Warwick community together to discuss, from an interdisciplinary perspective, the issue of plastics with a view to both raising awareness of the associated problems, and to develop ideas and initiatives to help tackle the problem.
