North Lakes to show environmental film

July 7, 2018 by  

Moreton Bay Regional Council is holding a free screening of the documentary ‘Blue’ as part of ‘Plastic Free July’.

The film will be shown at the Corso Community Centre in North Lakes on. Afterwards, there will be a chance for questions and discussions with presenter Tim Silverwood. The documentary combines investigative journalism and scientific essays calling on experts in different areas of ocean life to explain how quickly and how much the marine ecosystems are being harmed by the actions of humans.

There is no charge for this event and tickets can be booked online through the website.

Tim Silverwood is a passionate environmentalist and advocate for the protection of our oceans. He became aware of the huge amount of plastic pollution as a surfer and in 2009 he co-founded ‘Take 3’, a not-for-profit organisation, which encourages all beach-goers to remove three pieces of rubbish each time they visit the beach. In 2011, Tim visited the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in the northern Pacific Ocean and presented a TEDx talk about his experiences.

The screening will be this Sunday, July 8 at 10:00 am. Poster printing can often be helpful in promoting events like this.

Plastic Free July began in Western Australia in 2011 and now has millions of participants worldwide. By raising awareness, it aims to create a world with no plastic waste.
