It’s never too late to act
Boyan Slat, a 16-year old from Holland, was concerned about the plastic littering our oceans. He came up with a revolutionary technology that will allow us to “harvest” all this debris. His idea was so brilliant and his enthusiasm so contagious that in just two years he managed to attract some one hundred other believers (including many experts), create an organization called The Ocean Cleanup and raise $2 million. Come hear his fascinating and inspiring story.
Discover the Boyan Slat project at the Biodôme from April 18 to 26, 2015.
