Event description

Description

As the national maritime museum for an island nation, we are proud to share stories of the sea and waterways.

Join us for a lively discussion with ocean science experts on the health of our rivers, streams, oceans and seas. These passionate ocean defenders and innovators are working to address the most critical issues we face in the twenty-first century. How does what we do as individuals impact on the health of our waterways for generations to come, and what can we do to improve this impact?

Note: Ticket includes light refreshments


Speakers

Dr Julia Reisser


Dr Julia Reisser is an oceanographer with a PhD in Plastic Pollution. She is currently doing an MBA at the University of Western Australia to complement the skills she gained from more than 15 years of experience setting up, managing and leading projects for universities, start-ups and foundations, including the University of Western Australia, CSIRO, The Ocean Cleanup Foundation, Australian Institute of Marine Science and Minderoo Foundation.

Julia is now the Chief Scientist of the Seabin Project, an Australian start-up deploying a fleet of Seabin devices capable of removing floating debris, microplastics and surface pollutants from waterways, before these hit oceans. Her mission at the Seabin is to develop and scale the Pollution Index®: a multidimensional and scalable indicator that will use Citizen Science and Information Technology to track our progress towards a key Sustainable Development Goal target: ‘Cleaner Oceans by 2025’ (SDG 14.1).

More featured speakers will be announced early 2020.
