Water is life! The oceans – so clearly visible from space – are a powerful reminder of what makes our planet unique. Living so close to the Kent Coast, primary school children from Whitstable and the surrounding areas have a very special relationship with the sea and refuse to ignore the terrible damage humans cause through plastic and other kinds of pollution. This exhibition reflects their concerns – explored through a wide range of creative responses – and calls on everyone to do more to preserve the very precious planet that is their future.
