Sunday 25th November: Cambridge Literary Festival - Lucy Siegle

Palmerston Room St John's College Cambridge CB2 1TP 11:30-12:30 add to google calendar


Enough plastic is thrown away every year to circle the world four times - and at the current rate, plastic will outnumber fish in the ocean by 2050. We might have thought that the problem would be solved by corporations and policymakers, but change isn't happening fast enough. Rather than flailing in despondency, we need to take individual action - and Lucy Siegle wants to give us the tools to make this decisive change. It's time to turn the tide on plastic; join Lucy to find out how- In conversation with Rob Cameron, Chief Executive, SustainAbility.

Cambridge Carbon Footprint and Transition Cambridge will have a stall at this event. Registration required. More...
