TEDxGreatPacificGarbagePatch streams live this Saturday

This Saturday 6 November you have the opportunity to take part in an amazing worldwide live screening of the TEDxGreatPacificGarbagePatch conference, which has been organised by the Plastic Pollution Coalition.

The theme is the Global Plastic Pollution Crisis and will be a forum where issue experts, youth leaders, visual and performing artists, actors, musicians, politicians and many others will share observations on how plastic pollution affects ocean/environmental health and public health; explore solutions for reducing our plastic footprint, and begin to develop ideas about eliminating plastic pollution through individual action as well as public- and private-sector innovation.

Beth Terry from Fake Plastic Fish will also be contribibuting to the line up through her presentation, aptly titled Leading by Example.

So what can you do to contribute?  Well, you certainly don't have to trek all the way to California. to take part.  In fact, you don't even have to leave your comfy seat.  Just drop back here at 8.30am Pacific Time (that'll be 3.30pm GMT) and simply sit back and watch the live-stream.  And if there's anything you'd like to share, just tweet or facebook the news.

Here's the trailer, but on Saturday this little piece of  IT magic will be streaming the conference live.

Thanks for promoting this amazing event! I think you've got the times right. We are still on daylight savings time, so I think that means we're 7 hours apart, right?

I go on sometime after 1:30pm PT, so that would probably mean 8:30pm your time. Yes, nervous, but excited!
