How the oceans can clean themselves by Boyan Slat
Static Preview

Published on Oct 24, 2012

18-year-old Boyan Slat combines environmentalism, entrepreneurism and technology to tackle global issues of sustainability. After diving in Greece, and coming across more plastic bags than fish, he wondered; "why can't we clean this up?"  His 2017 speech announcing a design breakthrough is here.

While still being on secondary school, he then decided to dedicate half a year of research to understand plastic pollution and the problems associated with cleaning it up.
This ultimately led to his passive clean-up concept, which he presented at TEDxDelft 2012.
Working to prove the feasibility of his concept, Boyan Slat currently gives lead to a team of approximately 50 people, and temporarily quit his Aerospace Engineering study to completely focus his efforts on The Ocean Cleanup.

The progress of The Ocean Cleanup can be followed here.  On Facebook and Twitter.
Boyan Slat, born 1994 in Delfit, Netherlands, is an inventor, entrepreneur and aerospace engineering student of Croatian origin. His father is an artist who currently resides in Istria County, Croatia.

Water Ethic: C.Meine with Josephine Mandamin
Static Preview

Published August 30th by Humans and Nature

Josephine Mandamin an Anishabaabewe grandmother with a copper pail of water in one hand and a staff in the other, took on a sacred walk, traversing over 10,900 miles around each of the Great Lakes. She is known as the “Water Walker.”

According to the Michigan Sea Grant, the Great Lakes shoreline is equal to almost 44% of the circumference of the earth.  “When you see someone walking with a pail of water, you wonder, where is she going with that water.”

So the message is, water is very precious, and I will go to any lengths to and direction to carry the water to the people.”

“As women, we are carriers of the water. We carry life for the people. So when we carry that water, we are telling people that we will go any lengths for the water. We’ll probably even give our lives for the water if we have to. We may at some point have to die for the water, and we don’t want that,” said Mandamin.

Static Preview
With at least 660 million people around the globe relying on the ocean for their livelihoods, and many living on the poverty line, Miriam Turner, Interface's Assistant VP, Co-Innovation, saw an opportunity. Inspired by Aquafil's recycling strides, she asked "Could we take this down to the community level and benefit some of the poorest people in the world? What if we could build a truly inclusive business model - buying discarded nets from local fishermen - giving them extra income - and cleaning up the beaches and oceans at the same time?" Published on Sep 3, 2013 Interface Europe on Facebook.
