Since the broadcasting of the second series of the BBC’s Blue Planet back in December 2017, we have seen a huge increase in concern and awareness about the global ocean plastics crisis.
We live on a blue planet. 70% of our planet is made up of water. Yet so many people are so disconnected from the deep interconnection between humans and the ocean.
To try and change that, Dan Burgess and the team at Wild Labs have published this thought-provoking (and beautiful!) report focussed on ‘accelerating ocean literacy in UK culture’.
“Most of us live our lives blissfully unaware of how our daily actions impact on the health of the ocean, or how the health of the ocean impacts on our everyday lives. Ocean literacy is about shifting that, defined as ‘an understanding of the ocean’s influence on you and your influence on the ocean’.”
