описание на събитието
Plastic Free Newton Abbot with the support of Plastic Free Ally UTC will be screening the film Vitamin Sea.
The screening is free but donations to the Surfers Against Sewerage Plastic Free Campaign will be very gratefully received. Please book your place through Eventbrite.
In 2018, Ocean Advocate and Veterinary Surgeon Cal Major became the first person to stand-up paddleboard the entire length of the UK, from Land’s End to John O’Groats, setting a new World Record for the fastest time to do so.
The expedition, which took almost two months and saw Cal paddle almost 1000 miles, was part of her Paddle Against Plastic campaign, calling on positive solutions and grassroots and community activism to tackle the important issue of plastic pollution. She also raised almost £10,000 for mental health charities.
The film ‘Vitamin Sea’, one hour and eight minutes long, documents the expedition, and was filmed and edited by award-winning photographer and film-maker James Appleton.
“People Protect What They Love” - Jacques Cousteau
People Protect What They Love. But they only love what they know.
The film focuses on the importance of reconnecting to nature in order to drive a desire to protect it. It also looks into the importance of time in nature for our mental wellbeing, and how appreciating this may help us better understand the need to protect it.
The discussions that have arisen after the film have been very powerful, looking at action within those communities that can be taken to tackle plastic pollution, and discussing ways to find personal connections to the natural world. The discussions are also helping to inform The Vitamin Sea Project, which Cal intends to set up. The Vitamin Sea Project aims to be where wellbeing, connection to nature and protecting the oceans intersect.
'We all have a part to play in taking stewardship of our planet; reconnecting to what it means to us is the first crucial part” says Cal, who was recently named on The Independent’s Happy List, celebrating 50 people in the UK making the world a better place.
