In this episode, you will meet Craig Leeson, Sustainability GameChanger in the Global Australian Awards 2022. 

Craig Leeson is an award-winning filmmaker, journalist, presenter and entrepreneur, on a mission to end single-use plastic within a generation. He is the executive producer, director, writer and narrator of landmark global documentary A Plastic Ocean (2016), which documents the devastating global impact of plastic pollution on people and the planet. This year, he released his much anticipated follow-on film, The Last Glaciers; the most comprehensive film ever produced about the relationship between climate change, mountain environments and glaciers. His films are powerful vehicles for opening the eyes of audiences around the world to the impacts of human behaviour on the planet, and the urgent need for global climate action.

Mr Leeson generously shares stories about his extraordinary work in helping to drive more sustainable practices across the globe. Arguably the best moment in this interview is when Mr Leeson shares a unique and funny interaction he had with a baby blue whale, the outcome of which has provided groundbreaking insights into the species and their role in the oceans.
