Stop the Plastic Tide

The Royal Scottish Geographical Society (RSGS) in Stirling has invited Catherine Gemmell from the Marine Conservation Society to give a talk on her love for Scotland’s seas and shores, and her passion for stopping the plastic tide. From volunteers on the ground to pilots in the air, Catherine explores what is being done to tackle a global crisis in single-use plastics. Come along to find out what you can do to give our seas the protection they deserve.

Commenting on the upcoming talk, Catherine said:

“I am absolutely honoured to have been invited by RSGS to speak as part of their Inspiring People talks programme on my lifelong passion for Scotland's incredible marine environment.

“From rock-pooling along the Moray coast as a young girl, to Scuba Diving across Scotland during my time at Aberdeen University, to ocean litter campaigning with the Marine Conservation Society, I can't wait to share some of my stories and hopefully inspire others to take action to protect Scotland's incredible seas.”

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of RSGS said:

“Catherine’s passion for Scotland’s coastline is infectious. I hope her enthusiasm will rub off on our audiences and inspire them to think more closely about their impact on the natural world.”

Tickets can be reserved on the Royal Scottish Geographical Society's Eventbrite page or will be available on the door. Tickets are £10 for visitors, £8 for Tiso Outdoor Experience Cardholders and free for RSGS members, students and U18s.
