A Plastic Ocean screening at The Flagship

In honour and celebration of World Oceans Day on Thursday 8 June, we’re hosting a screening of the stunning documentary A Plastic Ocean at The Flagship Education Centre.

Join us from 6.30pm, for a 7.00pm film start, at The Flagship on the corner of Madden and Beaumont Streets, Wynyard Quarter. Entry is free on a first-come-first-served basis, so get in quick, spaces on our epic bean bags are limited. Spot prizes, delicious drinks and a speech from our team are all part of the package so please come along, we would love to see you!

See trailer for A Plastic Ocean here.

A Plastic Ocean is a new feature-length adventure documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. We thought we could use plastic once and throw it away with negligible impact to humans and animals. That turns out to be untrue.

In A Plastic Ocean, an international team of adventurers, researchers, and Ocean ambassadors go on a mission around the globe to uncover the shocking truth about what is truly lurking beneath the surface of our seemingly pristine Ocean.

The results will astound viewers with never-before-seen images of marine life, plastic pollution, and its ultimate consequences for human health.

During its four-year production period, A Plastic Ocean was filmed in 20 locations around the world in beautiful and chilling detail to document the global effects of plastic pollution–and introduce workable technology and policy solutions that can, if implemented in time, change things for the better.

Please note: in the interests of looking after the places we love, and avoiding traffic, wherever possible we would love to encourage all guests to please bike, walk, skate or take public transport to get to The Flagship.

A plastic ocean: We need a wave of change

A plastic ocean: We need a wave of change

Plastic Oceans Montreal invites you to come celebrate World Oceans Day on June 8, 2017 with the Plastic Oceans Foundation Canada as we host the first public Quebec screening of its new documentary, A Plastic Ocean.

This acclaimed feature length documentary was made by the Plastic Oceans Foundation - a global network of independent not-for-profit and charitable organisations - united in their aims to change the way we deal with plastic waste by challenging society's perception that this indestructible substance can be treated as 'disposable'. They aim to change the world's attitude towards plastic within one generation.

Filmed in 20 locations around the world, 'A Plastic Ocean' gives a global perspective on the issue of plastic waste in our oceans and examines the extent of the problem. Most importantly it shows us the ways that we can turn it around, not just through knowledge and behavioural changes but with amazing new technology. It has the potential to benefit our health and that of our children, our environment and our seas.

After the film, join us for a panel discussion, where local experts will talk about plastic pollution in a Montreal context and offer some ideas and advice that we can use to make immediate changes in our city. We are very excited to announce that  Dr. Peter Stoett of Concordia University’s Loyola Sustainability Research Centre, is among our panelists. Other panelists include Daniel Green, Deputy Leader of the Green Party of Canada, and Chantal Rouleau, Mayor of Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles; member of Montreal's Executive Committee with responsibility for water and water infrastructures

Don’t forget to show up early, as we will be hosting a Plastic Free Fair starting at 6 pm where you can meet some of our partners at their booths and learn about how they can help you reduce your plastic footprint!

This event is free to attend and open to the public. Tickets are available on Eventbrite, where you can also purchase raffle tickets to win great prizes including:

All funds raised will support the local projects of the Plastic Oceans Foundation Canada. For any questions or to sponsor this event, please email us at quebec@plasticoceans.org.

With the longest coastline in the world but several provinces without any ocean borders, we serve all aquatic environments around and within Canada and all the creatures touched by them by working to solve a global problem with local actions.

ACROPORA Roatan Eco Trail 2017

ACROPORA is an eco trail run to raise awareness on World Oceans Day in support of the Bay Islands Conservation Association (BICA), a not for profit environmental organization on the islands of Roatan, Utila and Guanaja. All funds raised will go directely to BICA Roatan Chapter conservation efforts in the Bay Islands National Marine Park and implementing its programs in the communities that surround the marine protected area.

Why ACROPORA? 
Acropora is a coral that has over 149 species! Among them the well known elkhorn and staghorn corals☆
Acropora species are some of the major reef corals responsible for building the immense calcium carbonate substrate that supports the thin living skin of a reef. They grow quickly and many small reef fishes live near their colonies and retreat into the thicket of branches if threatened. In Roatan we have one of the largest populations of staghorn coral at Cordelia Banks, the Jewel of the Caribbean♡

 

Date: Saturday 10th of June, 2017

Distances: 2K, 6K, 10K

Start: 8am @ Mall Megaplaza, French Harbour, Roatan
