A Plastic Ocean, Film Screening & Discussion

A PLASTIC OCEAN begins when journalist Craig Leeson, searching for the elusive blue whale, discovers plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean. In this adventure documentary, Craig teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers, and they travel to twenty locations around the world over the next four years to explore the fragile state of our oceans, uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect.

David Attenborough described this a documentary as “one of the most important films of our time”.

Following the screening, we will have a discussion about what is being done locally and nationally and how people can join in and support efforts to address the issue.

We are being joined by Sorcha Cantwell who set up the 'Scottish Coastal Cleanup Project'last year and has collected over a ton of rubbish from our beaches. We also have 'Ullapool Sea Saver' - a group of campaigning primary pupils who will be bringing along some ideas too.

Free entry - donations to Scottish Coastal Cleanup Project accepted.

Screening has been joint funded by Living Seas and the MacPhail Centre/High Life Highland.

We recommend that you pack a lunch, plenty of beverages, and bring a life preserver for each person in your group. Max capacity on each boat should be observed and respected.

AZTI & EEAcademy Summer School "Blue Growth: can marine environment support growth maintaining good ocean health?"

AZTI organizes annually an international ‘Summer School’ on marine research related cutting-edge topics, always trying to bridge the gap between research and policy. The course is taught by about 5-12 professors and attended by around 60-90 students from 15-20 countries.
For 2018, coinciding with the 15th anniversary of the courses, the topic proposed is the Blue Growth and how to reconcile this growth with the maintaining of the environmental status, under the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). Hence, a new edition building on a socio-ecological framework to address the important management issues related to the governance of the oceans. Governing the oceans and keeping them in a healthy state requires activities at sea to be sustainable, so that the ecosystem services provided by the oceans and the functionality of the ecosystems can be maintained, even under a blue growth.
The attendees will acquire new knowledge on recent trends in marine research, in relation to the management and governance of our oceans and the blue growth initiatives.
This summer school will focus on the integration of different sciences (i.e. social, economic and ecological) as a means to enhance the potential of our oceans through adequate management and governance, for which sustainable blue growth is crucial. This course will explore this at different spatial scales and in management and governance applications (e.g. to the MSFD, the Maritime Spatial Planning Directive, the Biodiversity Strategy 2020; etc.). Hence, the main objective of the school is to give an overview on the problems associated to blue growth, and its relationship with ocean and coastal livelihoods, management and governance.
As an outcome of this course (in addition to the presentations, which will be freely available after the school), the professors participating in the course will prepare an open access position paper on this topic, to be submitted to a broad scope scientific journal (e.g. PlosOne, Frontiers in Marine Science, etc.). This will be a cross-cutting review.
This position paper will have an impact on another key audience, marine policy makers and managers. In addition to such impact, it is expected that students participating in this summer school will implement the knowledge gained through this summer school in their professional careers.

BLUE - critically aclaimed feature documentary

BLUE is a film about how the oceans are broken, and what can be done to fix them. Half of all marine life has been lost in the last 40 years. And by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish. Featuring passionate advocates for ocean preservation, the film tackles themes of habitat destruction, species loss and pollution. Filmed in the seas surrounding Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines and the USA, BLUE looks at how the very nature of the ocean is being altered. Our ocean has been the guardian of life on earth. Now it is our turn to be guardians for the ocean.
