Camilla Berens, the Co-ordinator of Greenwich and Lewisham Greenpeace, will be giving a talk on what we can do to reduce our dependence on plastic and move towards a more sustainable future.

The shocking images of plastic pollution in our oceans have entered the public consciousness like no other environmental issue in recent years. This is an ideal time to re-assess the role we all play in reducing our impact on the planet. 

Camilla Berens is a journalist and environmental activist. She has been Greenpeace's area co-ordinator for Greenwich and Lewisham for ten years and strongly believes that non-violent direct action must play a central role in addressing the core issues behind climate change if we are to deal with the problem before it's too late. 

The talk will take place on 6 December at 5.45pm in QA063, Greenwich campus. Refreshments will be available and the event is free, but registration is required via Eventbrite.

This series is organised by the Raphael Samuel History Centre, for more information on the Centre and their talks, please contact Vanessa Taylor.
