Imaginez 8 millions de tonnes de plastique... ou 35.000 conteneurs de transport remplis de plastique... telle est la quantité de plastique déversée chaque année dans les océans de la planète. Les conséquences sont dramatiques. «Nos océans sont en danger. D’ici 2050, ils pourraient contenir plus de plastique que de poissons» avait annoncé Mme Mogherini, haute représentante de l’UE, lors de la conférence #NotreOcéan organisée à Malte en octobre dernier. Ocean Plastics Lab est une exposition internationale itinérante qui montre comment la science peut nous permettre de comprendre et de combattre le problème du plastique dans les océans. L’exposition se trouve actuellement sur l’esplanade Solidarność 1980, au Parlement européen.

Imagine oito milhões de toneladas de plástico... ou 35.000 contentores cheios de plástico... esta é a quantidade de plástico que é despejada no mar no mundo... todos os anos. As consequências são dramáticas. «Os nossos oceanos estão em perigo. Em 2050, poderá haver mais plástico do que peixes» declarou a Alta Representante da UE Federica Mogherini na conferência #OurOcean, relaizada em Malta em outubro passado. A Ocean Plastics Lab é uma exposição itinerante internacional que visa dar a conhecer o contributo da ciência para compreender e combater o problema da presença de plásticos nos oceanos. A exposição está atualmente patente na Esplanada Solidarność 1980, no Parlamento Europeu, em Bruxelas.
