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.

Update on Industrial Hemp in Oregon by Edgar Winters and Doug Fine
Static Preview

Interview with Oregon Farmer, Edgar Winters of the Oregon Agricultural Food and Rural Consortium (OAFRC) and author and hemp advocate Doug Fine.

Will Edgar the first hemp licensee in Oregon for industrial hemp be able to get seeds in the ground before times runs out to plant this spring? Maybe, but it will have to be through 7606 Federal Farm Bill provision which permits "agricultural pilot programs."

This is an old commodity, king of all plants, and we need to build the domestic seed stock and get things rolling and see positive results in terms of rural economic development. Produced by Barry Heidt.
