This was our very first in person technical event and the very first in our new Sustainably Engineering Together series ! We had 2 great speakers talking about different aspects of the Ocean.
First up was our Keynote Speaker; Richard Hixman of Healthcare Ocean – www.healthcareocean.org. The audience were held captive hearing about the importance of our oceans, how they have changed due to human activities and how we can all help. Richard stressed there are many things we can do at home and at work to REDUCE our impact by considering our: Cars, Consumption, Chemicals and Cruises.
Judy Power of the Tees River Trust told us all about local projects which are being undertaken now to make a difference for the long term health of the River Tees. Judy wowed us talking about the power of nature and in particular oysters and sea grass. You can find out more, and volunteer to help out, on their website – www.teesriverstrust.org.
