Protecting Our Planet Broadcast Success
Protecting Our Planet was initially planned to be a physical event by the Environment Agency in collaboration with WWF.
The event was to be held at the WWF UK headquarters on 26th March 2020. However, due to the Covid-19 lockdown, the event had to be changed to a virtual broadcast.
It was one of the first events to take place as part of the Interreg FCE Preventing Plastic Pollution project and planned to engage young people with the natural world, the challenges it faces and what they can do about it.
There were talks from the Plastics and Sustainability team and the Flood and Coastal Risk Management team at the Environment Agency, alongside WWF and Lucie Parsons (a young person).
On the day 33,690 people tuned in to the live stream and were able to engage with the speakers and ask questions through the live chat.
Feedback on the day included ‘this is literally the best video EVER thank you for doing it!!!!!!!!!!!!!’
