Lecture to Discuss Solutions to Ocean Plastics

litterWOODS HOLE – The Sea Education Association has been focused on the issue of plastics in the oceans dating back to the 1970s and the organization will host a lecture on the topic this weekend.

“An Ocean of Plastic: Searching for Solutions” will be held Sunday at 1 p.m. at the James L. Madden Center Lecture Hall at the Sea Education Center on Woods Hole Road in Falmouth.

The lecture, delivered by SEA professors Erin Bryant, Kara Lavender Law and Mark Long, will address the global problem of plastics pollution in ocean waters and a look at possible solutions.

SEA faculty members have teamed up with NOAA to leverage social norm theory and address the source of the plastics ending up in the ocean.

The organization hopes to slow and stop the flow of plastics into the world’s waters with the development of public education materials.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

The Sea Education Association has educated students about the world’s oceans through its Boston University accredited study abroad program, SEA Semester, for 45 years.
