Join me for an event that I hope will change the way we live today and in the future: TEDxGreatPacificGarbagePatch. This one-day event will bring together thought leaders from the fields of technology, science, arts and entertainment, design, activism, and business to discuss the global plastic pollution crisis. Together, the group will identify the problem and share possible ways to solve it. In the past few years, the world has taken notice of the Garbage Patch in the Pacific Ocean, a gyre of trash estimated to be at a minimum the size of the state of Texas and possibly as large at the United States. 90% of this trash patch is comprised of plastic. And there are similar areas of plastic pollution throughout the world in all the world’s oceans, in seemingly unlikely places like the Arabian Desert, along some of the most pristine beaches of the world, in our cities, in our rivers, and in our bodies. Plastic pollution affects every one of us.
From 8:30am to 6pm today, you can watch the event LIVE here on The Good Human or on TedxGreatPacificGarbagePatch.com
Confirmed speakers include Dr. Sylvia Earle, Captain Charles Moore, Van Jones, David de Rothschild, Jackson Browne, Jordan Howard, Stacy Malkan, Ken Cook, Bharati Chaturvedi, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama, Vice President of Ghana, Beth Terry, Fabien Cousteau, and Ed Begley Jr.
