A birthday donation will be made to Ocean Generation UK on your behalf. Your donation will go towards educating people about ocean plastics, research on how to remove and reduce plastic, and making more people aware of this important issue.

We’re passionate about reducing plastic waste. Being located in a seaside city, we’re very aware of the effect of plastics in bodies of water. As a university, we’re at the forefront of plastics research and recently secured funding worth £5.8 million to speed up progress to finding a solution to the plastic crisis. Find out more about our Revolution Plastics initiative.

Join the conversation on our Facebook applicant group to find others as passionate as you are about environmental issues.
