Smarter Living – The Effects Litter has on our Waterways
Wed., 3 April 2019 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
For over three decades, founding director of the EcoCentre Neil Blake (OAM) has been widely recognised and loved by the community for his deep knowledge, personable character, and extensive experience in environmental management, local history, biodiversity and community development. Neil is the Port Phillip Baykeeper for the global Waterkeeper Alliance, providing an independent voice for our Bay and its inhabitants large and small. He has a unique capacity to bring diverse stakeholders together, facilitate collaboration and produce tangible outcomes.
Neil will speak about the latest developments in litter and plastic pollution, the research in Melbourne, and what we can do to reduce the amount of plastic in our own lives. He will also show a short documentary ‘Baykeepers’ showing the effects litter has had on our waterways.
