Everyone bangs on about education being the key, but it’s true. We can have deposit return systems, more recycling facilities, circular economies and the like but if every person on the planet isn’t made aware of the issue in the first place, and the fact that we can all as individuals make a difference then it’s all of limited use.
The key with TPP is education at all levels, whether it is reaching a fully grown adult, or a primary school pupil, it’s what we’re all about. We have the key to reaching these people as well using surf/adventure/environment route, it appeals to an inner explorer in all of us.
So we are dong this on three levels –
- Is to reach out to the world using our network of photographer, filmmakers, surfers and outdoor adventurers to create generally available content documenting the global problem.
- Through primary/elementary school projects, teaming up with educational groups and giving them access to the resources to create material relevant to their curriculums,
- The provide a resource archive for any school or college, so they can dip into and use in combination with their courses
All of this we want to deliver for free, information is the most important resource we can give anyone, and it shouldn’t come with a price tag when it comes to saving our oceans.
Here are three of the finalists for this years Lit Film Festival for 2017, organised by the inspirational folk at A Tale Unfolds. They got us and CNN together and then got primary schools across the UK using our footage and stories as a them to learn about ocean plastic.
