Still from the movie 'Blue'

‘By 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish’ – that’s one of the stark warnings contained in the award-winning movie ‘Blue’ which is showing at Key Employment Youth Hub on June 15 for free as part of the local Plastic Free July campaign.

“Plastic pollution is now a global, as well as a huge local concern,” said Louise de Mattia, Council’s Waste Education Officer. “But it’s a conversation that’s sparking action all over the world – and the message from the movie is that each individual can make a difference and help reverse this enormous ocean disaster.”

Aimed at youth aged 12-24, but open to the parents/guardians of children aged under 15, the outdoor screening is a collaboration between Council, Key Employment Youth Hub and KaPow participants.

Screening begins at 6pm at the Youth Hub in West High Street, but the event runs from 4pm-9pm with loads of family-friendly entertainment including:

  • Live music from False Faces, the Woopi duo with soulful, fun tunes. They also won the Youth Week Battle of the Bands in Coffs.
  • Free use of the basketball courts.
  • Food trucks with hot drinks – coffee, tea and hot chocolate by Seben Café – and hot organic donuts by Dylan’s Organic Donuts for sale.
  • Plenty of parking.
  • BYO sleeping bag, chair, or rug.
