Blue Dot Generation is a platform that promotes the use of the arts for education. Creating events that bring together artists, musicians, professionals and scientists. By engaging in local communities and inspiring international audiences through art, we will encourage a change in the relationship between people and our blue planet.In line with our mission and values, all events will be aimed towards both green and non-green audiences, of all ages and all walks of life.
In 1999, Voyager 1 took a photograph of earth from 3.7 billion kilometres away. In the picture, our planet shone in a bright blue hue. From here it became known as ‘The Blue Dot.’
Whilst scientists may still refer to our planet as the ‘Blue Dot’, with over 8 million tonnes of plastic can we really say the oceans that cover 70% of this dot are that blue?
‘It’s just one plastic bag’ say 7 billion people. Over the last year, there is an increasing awareness of the issues of plastic pollution, sustainability and ocean welfare. Brought to life by David Attenborough’s Blue Planet II, the nation was horrified to see the reality behind these anthropogenic issues; and the resulting pressures placed on marine life and their ecosystem.
