The planet is facing a major crisis: plastic pollution in the oceans. At this immersive exhibit, you’ll learn about the impact man is having on the water, especially across the Hawaiian archipelago.3

Try your hand at a science experiment where you’ll analyse the ocean’s plastic pollution. This educational showcase creates awareness about the Earth’s fragile ecosystems and looks to address one of our most pressing issues.




THE LONDON FESTIVAL is not your average day out, it’s an inclusive, immersive, and interactive experience that celebrates the city’s 32 boroughs. It honours diversity without cliché or stereotype. It represents all people, all ages, and all cultures.

This wholly unique concept is proudly brought to you by Empower London Foundation (in conjunction with Nascent Vek Group). This visionary team will fund vital charitable initiatives across the capital using the funding gained from the spectacle.
