20th June – Zoom Meet-up – Making a Difference with Gary Jolliffe

Featured Presentation

As director of Till the Coast is Clear CIC, Gary has spent the last five years clearing plastic pollution from the South Hams coast and helping others to take action and make a difference in their own way.

We get a look around “the office” and Gary talks us through the various approaches he has developed and the challenges he faces.

I love this quote from the Till the Coast is Clear website that I hope sets up our discussion quite nicely, “The scale of the challenges that face us all are daunting. Working together and getting stuck in is the only solution. So, let’s get cracking, there is lots to be done.”
