Film Screening: Outward Bound School Hong Kong

11/05/2017 @ 10:30 am - 10:30 pm PST

“A Plastic Ocean”
– A Film To Make A Difference

We are hosting a screening of “A Plastic Ocean” at Hong Kong Academy Theatre on 5th Nov FOR FREE!

“A Plastic Ocean” is a new feature-length adventure documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. We thought we could use plastic once and throw it away with negligible impact to humans and animals. That turns out to be untrue.

“A Plastic Ocean” begins when journalist Craig Leeson, searching for the elusive blue whale, discovers plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean. In this adventure documentary, Craig teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers, and they travel to twenty locations around the world over the next four years to explore the fragile state of our oceans, uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect.

Feeling ambitious?

We will kayak together to an island near Sai Kung and cleanup the coastline. Recruit friends and family to join you in a larger cleanup. Explain to them that no matter where you live—whether on the coast or hundreds of miles inland— all waterways lead to the ocean. But if we take action and work together, we can improve the ocean’s health and make rubbish free seas a reality.

We love working alongside dedicated volunteers to pick up everyday items like straws, wrappers, cigarette butts, and other rubbish and help to stop it from harming our ecosystem. Please join us and our partners as we work to create a rubbish free environment!

What Do We Provide?

Life Jackets, Paddles, Kayaks, Cotton Gloves, Rubbish Sacks.

Outward Bound will provide bag storage free of charge. Bags will be collected at Sha Ha beach registration area and returned at Outward Bound, Tai Mong Tsai base only.

Please note, there will be limited storage space. Large bags will not be accepted.

What Do You Need To Prepare?

Water, Dry bag, water shoes or other covered shoes (training shoes are fine), Sun cream, Hat AND ENERGY!

If you watch the film and join the kayaking, please note that there will be no facility or time for changing clothes so please arrive prepared in the morning.
