Human Healthcare and the Ocean

Synopsis:  In this lecture, Richard will  talk about how humans are damaging our oceans, how changes are occurring at an unprecedented rate and why we need to be worried. Richard will explain the role the NHS must play and how at Healthcare Ocean we are bringing together organisations to drive positive change.

Dr Richard Hixson co-founded Healthcare Ocean as his main interest is Global Goal 14, Life Below Water and how anthropogenic activities including healthcare procurement, container shipping and molecular pollution adversely affected the marine environment. His goal is to ensure oceans, coasts and inland waterways are never forgotten in NHS net zero planning as without healthy oceans, it will simply be impossible to successfully tackle the climate crisis.
