Sea4All will be on the Volvo Race on Sunday, 27th 13:30 – 14:00 ‘A talk on Sea4All: Modelling Plastic and Marine Pollution in the World’s Oceans by Tiago Alves, School of Earth & Ocean Sciences’.
Cardiff University has been announced as a leading local partner in the Volvo Ocean Race, the world’s premier sailing series, as it arrives in the city on Monday 28th May.
Throughout the two week event, which will see thousands of spectators descend on Cardiff Bay to experience one of the last stopovers in the 45,000 nautical mile round-the-world race, Cardiff University will be taking part in a range of outreach and engagement activities.
As part of the Public Education Programme, academics will be speaking on a number of topics, from ocean currents and climate change to micro-plastics.
Indeed, the event itself will be heavily focused on the growing problem of plastic pollution in our oceans, with a number of campaigns planned to raise the profile of this burdening issue.
