Join in celebrating WORLD OCEANS DAY on Thursday June 8th in Ullapool casting votes for #CleanSeas. Events happening across the world and on line.
World Oceans Day is a designated UN day to celebrate & honour the world’s oceans.
“Urgent action on a global scale is needed to alleviate the world’s oceans from the many pressures they face, and to protect them from future dangers that may tip them beyond the limits of their carrying capacity. ” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
The Day provides an opportunity to get directly involved in protecting our future, through a new mindset and personal and community action and involvement.
My response is to take to the shores of Loch Broom ( Ullapool harbour) where I will be leading a Guided Guide walk sharing information from the Guide to Beach Litter and highlighting the importance of healthy Oceans discussing the many initiatives here and around the world to protect the oceans.
As its polling day here in the UK, participants will be invited to join me at An Talla Solais Gallery, to share experiences and ideas of how to bring about change and to cast your votes for a variety of approaches to reduce plastic pollution in the World’s Oceans and specifically in Scotland.
Ullapool Event: – meet by the pier on West Shore 11am or 5.30pm, followed at the gallery at 12 noon & 6.15pm An Talla Solais Gallery, West Arglye St, Ullapool
In return voters will receive a copy of the ‘Isle of CHANGE’ map from the NEO Terra exhibition presently showing at An Talla Solais until the 18th June
A PDF copy of the map will also be available to download on World Ocean Day from here. Please leave a comment below and join in the debate .

My name is Jackie Sewell and i’m an artist working out of Newcastle, I am all for World Ocean day our planet is suffocating in plastic. My work has currently opened at Customs House, South Shields and is about waste. My installation of over 2,000 plastic water and pop bottles highlights the amount of waste created from a small amount of people in a small amount of time. My work also involves carrier bags and the blight that is created by them on the land. Please look at my wesite below
Great to hear of a fellow artist focussing on Plastic Pollution. Look forward to meeting/having a conversation with you sometime. I have amny connections in the North East of England. off to put up more posters and prepare polling station!
