Life Sciences: A Solution to Pollution

EMBL will host an EU Green Week 2021 Partner Event showcasing how it is playing a role in achieving a ‘zero pollution’ continent through its exciting research and ambitious sustainability strategy.

During this virtual event, participants can engage in an interactive discussion with EMBL scientists and special guests from the Tara Ocean Foundation, HeidelbergCement, and the Ministry of Science, Research and Arts of the state of Baden-Württemberg, Germany to learn more about upcoming ocean and land research projects and community efforts to tackle pollution. You will gain a better understanding of why life science research is important in the global effort to tackle pollution, and how this research can help us find solutions.

Scientists from EMBL and our partner, the Tara Ocean Foundation, will introduce existing and future ocean and land research projects.

A virtual educational pack for children invites you to learn more about ‘how plastic ends up in our oceans’, ‘how currents work’, and ‘what happens to the plastic in the ocean?’ by doing your own fun experiments at home. In short video clips, EMBL scientists will guide you through simple hands-on experiments.
