The Tide of Change
Lucy founded Sea Synergy Marine Awareness Centre in 2014 and, for over 11 years, has been highlighting ocean health and plastic pollution in the ocean.
The centre’s outreach programme visits local schools educating thousands of children on plastic pollution. Lucy has also been nominated as an Ocean Hero and Ocean Warrior by An Taisce –The National Trust for Ireland
Sustainability Education Programme Manager, Volvo Ocean Race
Following July’s Sky Ocean Rescue documentary that saw the Turn the Tide on Plastic team collect comprehensive data and embark on research on ocean pollution during the Volvo Ocean Race, Volvo and the Rappacioli family have invited Lucy Hunt into their home to get under the skin of how they live and explain the many ways that they can reduce the amount of single-use plastics in their everyday lives. As a marine biologist and creator of a bespoke education programme based on ocean health and plastic pollution, Lucy is the perfect person to open their eyes to the truth about single-use plastics and ocean sustainability.

Constructing the future
Nowadays, our air isn’t as clean as it once was. More and more cities across the globe are becoming enveloped in smog and pollution is a problem that doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Up to 45 per cent of the world’s population now suffers from some form of allergy or hypersensitivity and over 10 per cent suffer from asthma. And when you consider that we now spend more time in our cars than ever before, the need for an effective and reliable air conditioning system has never been greater. This is why Volvo developed the CleanZone philosophy.
