‘A Plastic Ocean’
Film Screening & Discussion with Producer Joanna Ruxton
February 7, 2018
The Children’s Museum of Skagit County, one of the Valley’s premier spots for children, their families and educators, will be hosting their second screening of the award-winning documentary A Plastic Ocean on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 at 6:00pm in the Museum. The Children’s Museum is particularly excited to welcome the film’s Producer and Founder, Joanna Ruxton, who will answer questions and offer unique insight into the development of the film and the foundation.
Children make up 25 percent of the world’s population, but they’re 100 percent of its future. Offering educational opportunities such as this that encourage good stewardship, healthy choices, and inspire problem-solving solutions are at the core of the Museum mission. Ms. Ruxton has presented this film and the foundation’s work around the world – including to such audiences as the U.S. State Department, the United Nations, the Australian Parliament and UNESCO, amongst many others. She has noted that the most motivated and engaged audiences have been school-age children.
We look forward to offering free admission to this event and to giving students the opportunity to ask their own questions and offer their own solutions to the problem of single-use plastic waste. Change starts with us, and our children will lead the way.
