Journey of change

Around a year ago, an invitation arrived on my desk to design and facilitate a workshop that turned out to be one of the most unusual the last 20 years. A diverse group of people including a racing yacht designer, marine biologists, architects, designers, marketeers, engineers, educators and communication specialists worked together for a day to take the PLASTIKI forwards. The project was conceived by David de Rothschild to raise awareness of the damage being caused to the world's oceans by perpetual dumping of plastic waste.

In a month or so's time, the Platiki, a catamaran raft built from plastic bottles, will set sail on a 10,000 mile across the Pacific, collecting samples and blogging reports to raise awareness about the volume of plastic waste floating in the Pacific Gyre.
