328: Ocean Plastics Academy with Sarah Duffy – Common Seas
Common Seas is a social enterprise tackling the plastic pollution crisis by driving new policy, investing in the circular economy and catalysing a cultural shift in how we make, use and dispose of plastic.
Common Seas has four interconnected programmes. Together, these achieve the system change we need to halt plastic pollution and protect our ocean.
Their mission is to quickly and significantly reduce the amount of plastic produced and stop it polluting our rivers and seas. Common Seas is an international team of scientists, researchers, policy experts, communicators and behaviour change professionals.
As Project Manager for Ocean Plastics Academy, Sarah Duffy is working with Common Seas to help inspire and empower the next generation of change makers. Our ocean needs a new generation of sea champions. Common Seas want every child to understand the plastic crisis so they can help create a plastic waste-free future.
Ocean Plastics Academy combines a suite of curriculum-aligned resources with practical activities to equip young people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to lead a plastic waste revolution in their school and beyond.
Sarah has shaped her career to combine her interest in education and her passion for the natural world. With Qualified Teacher Status, a Master’s in Education for Sustainability, and more than a decade working in the environmental education sector, she has extensive experience designing and managing programmes on complex topics of sustainability.
