A FORUM TO FIGHT OCEAN PLASTIC POLLUTION

Copia-di-Copia-di-Post-Fondi-Export-SocialAs the second Malta Sustainability Forum prepares to kick-start online later this month, Malta’s first-ever Ocean Ambassador Alan Deidun explains why fighting ocean plastic pollution should be at the top of humanity’s priorities list.

The air we breathe, the food we eat, the freshwater we depend upon, the climate we need to support life: not many people fully appreciate the crucial role that is played by the ocean in providing all these vital aspects of our ongoing existence.

It doesn’t help that, technically, the ocean ‘belongs’ to no one, according to marine biologist and Malta’s first Ocean Ambassador, Alan Deidun.

Generally low level of appreciation and responsibility for the world’s oceans has created an altogether more alarming and urgent issue – that of plastic pollution.

To combat this, Deidun is participating in the Ocean Plastic Pollution module at the upcoming Malta Sustainability Forum, which specifically aims to push the issue to the top of the national and international priority list.
