Glaister Lecture: Solving the Plastic Problem – From Cradle to Grave, to Reincarnation!
May 12 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Lecture by Professor Chris Rhodes. Plastics are wonder-materials that have enabled the creation of the modern, industrialised world. However, their robustness means they degrade only slowly and poorly in the environment, and now pollute the oceans, the air, drinking water and food. As alarming as this may sound, plastic production is really just one element in the overall problem of a changing climate (“the world’s woes”), and must be addressed as part of an integrated consideration of how we use all resources, and the need to change our expectations, goals and lifestyles. Professor Chris Rhodes is an advisor on low-carbon energy to the European Commission and director of Fresh-lands Environmental Action, based in Reading. Places are limited.
