Exhibition charts campaign against plastic pollution

The Diocese of East Anglia has signed up as a full partner in the East of England Plastics Coalition, a group of civic and business organisations determined to remove plastic waste.

“Those living near Norwich might be interested in an upcoming plastics event being hosted at the UEA,” writes Fr Paul Maddison. “The event is an interactive exhibition called ‘A Plastic Journey: Science, Society and Solutions’, and is happening on Saturday May 21 between 12 noon and 7:30 pm.”

The exhibition line-up includes a ‘Drowning in Plastic’ film, a talk and Q&A session with TV presenter Liz Bonnin, a craftivism workshop, as well as a talk on microplastics, and exhibits on plastic reduction and reuse based on scientific research, artistic responses, and community initiatives. The event is free, with no booking required.
