    The extent of plastics and litter in our oceans has led to a rejection of single-use plastics. Banning single-use plastics is not enough to save our oceans. A lecture by Jacqueline McGlade, Jackson Professor of the Environment 28 April 2020 6:00pm UK Time Recent evidence about the extent of plastics and litter in our oceans has led to grassroots rejection of single-use plastics. This lecture will draw on McGlade's own research (published in 2020) on plastics in our seas. She will show that banning single-use plastics is not enough to safeguard the health of our oceans, and that what is needed is a complete redesign of global production systems. Following the UN Sustainable Development Goal 14, she will outline ways that we can work to "conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development" in the face of unsustainable consumption and production and rapidly changing climate.
