Sail Against Plastics – exhibition & film screening

Tuesday 30 October 2018
ESI Cafe, Penryn Campus
5pm - 6:30pm

As part of campus sustainability week, Sail Against Plastic, a pioneering team of scientists, filmmakers, photographers and artists, will be showing their film A Message from the Arctic, which follows their expedition to the arctic to determine the levels of plastic pollution making its way there on ocean currents.


The film screening is part of a wider exhibition of works from the expedition that will be displayed as part of the ESI’s Creative Exchange Programme. The screening will be followed by a presentation and Q&A session with members of Sail Against Plastic.
There will be a chance to meet with the team and ask questions, alongside free sustainable refreshments.


There are limited places for this event. To register please reserve a ticket at:
