Season 4 Episode 1

Welcome to another episode of the Design Atlas Podcast! In this edition, we dive deep into the innovative realm of environmental conservation with a special focus on the groundbreaking work of Florent Beauverd. At 39 years old, Florent transitioned from his role as an environmental scientist to become the Director of Creative and Documentary Productions at the renowned Ocean Cleanup organization.

Founded in 2013 by Boyan Slat, the Ocean Cleanup is a nonprofit on a mission to combat the global crisis of plastic pollution in our oceans. Through the strategic deployment of advanced cleanup systems, including floating barriers that harness natural ocean currents, the organization aims to concentrate and capture plastic debris. By doing so, they hope to significantly diminish the presence of plastic waste in our oceans and mitigate the severe environmental consequences.

Florent Beauverd shares insights into the organization's initiatives, shedding light on the importance of creative and documentary productions in advocating for a cleaner and healthier planet.
