Sustainability for our Oceans and Land has everything to do with us

We inspire, empower and share knowledge on how we solve the big problems on environmental issues and social change. We promote PLAN B Solutions.

The 'Plastic Free Boy Team' is on a global mission to save the ocean from plastic pollution.

Since 2017, Arlian, known as 'Plastic Free Boy', has united thousands of children by sharing the inspiring and educational documentary 'Plastic Alarm' (2017) and 'Plan B - Full of Solutions to protect the Great Barrier Reef' (2021 )made by his mum Karin Ecker, in schools internationally, showcasing the problems and solutions of plastic pollution and Climate Change.

He engages school children with his mission in protecting the ocean and our waterways, not only for marine animals but for future generations, by highlighting scientific facts such as microplastic, ocean acidification, coral spawning, etc., and its effects on human health.

The PFB team's ongoing filmmaking campaign and international speaker engagements have been featured on national media, been nominated for the 'Green Globe Awards', and earned Arlian titles such as 2019 Youth Ambassador for 'Clean Up Australia Day'.

As a Plenary Speaker for the Sustainability of Cities and the Summit's youngest speaker, Arlian will share how he is uniting and empowering future generations by collaborating with community groups, corporations, and government agencies to co-create a sustainable future.

For someone so young to be invited to speak at such a significant Summit with around 90 Mayors and other senior representatives from over 125 Cities and nearly 1500 delegates from around the Asia Pacific region is a huge honour and is a testimony of the high regard in which you are held.

This Summit is now regarded as the second largest cities  Summit is the Asia Pacific Region.

You presented the case to free our oceans of plastic in a coherent and compelling way.

You presented the facts with an appropriate level of passion and commitment to your cause in a convincing way that had credibility with the audience.
