AUB Human is delighted to be supporting Earth Day 2024. Earth Day's goal is to expand, educate, and engage the environmental movement on a global scale. Originating from the inaugural Earth Day event in 1970, EARTHDAY.ORG is the largest advocate for environmental action worldwide, partnering with over 150,000 organizations across 192 countries to promote positive action for our planet.

Please join us for speaker talks and a film screening to foster meaningful conversations and inspire actionable change.

Earth Day schedule

Earth Day 2024 focuses on the theme Planet vs. Plastics, urging for increased awareness of the health hazards associated with plastics, the swift elimination of single-use plastics, urgent advocacy for a robust UN Treaty addressing plastic pollution, and a cessation of fast fashion practices. To debate Planet vs. Plastics, we are delighted to welcome Dr Louise Dennis, from AUB’s Museum of Design in Plastics (MoDiP).

Dr Louise Dennis is the Curator of MoDiP, the Museum of Design in Plastics, based at the Arts University Bournemouth, UK. MoDiP is the only UK-accredited museum with a focus on plastics and has been awarded Designated Outstanding Collection status by Arts Council England. Louise’s research explores the value of the museum and its specialist focus, with a particular interest in the various relationships surrounding materiality and museum objects. Through her work with the museum, she aims to show the value of plastics materials when used appropriately, and hopes that, by learning from the past, manufacturers, designers, and consumers can make better informed choices.

Jon Cleave is an AUB alumnus, graduating in BA (Hons) Graphic Design. He's an award-winning graphic designer who has worked in advertising, a creative director, and an award-winning photographer and filmmaker. He's also an entrepreneur who founded Newyonder, a global streaming service and Certified B Corp® that takes you on your own journey across the globe, all from your sofa.

Jon will talk about his creative career aiming to inspire students on not boxing themselves in, “as anything is possible if you set your mind to it”. Following this talk, there'll be a screening of Three Moons of Biyangdo, followed by a Director’s Q&A.
