Facebook Live Dale Vince and SSUK Captain Paul Watson


In November, we hosted a conversation between Dale Vince and Captain Paul Watson. We had a fantastic evening listening to this dynamic duo share their wisdom and hope for the future. Dale introduced his new book, Manifesto, to the audience, describing it as ‘part biography, part mission statement’. You can pre-order the book at the Ecotricity shop.

If you missed the chat, or would like to tune in again, you can watch it back here.


How you can support Sea Shepherd


Helen Taylor, Ambassador for Sea Shepherd UK, shares her top tips on how to support Sea Shepherd UK:

1. Join as a UK onshore volunteer

Application forms can be found here.

2. Arrange a ‘Beach Clean’ for Sea Shepherd UK

Above or under the water on the coast (or even an estuary, river or harbour) near you! Litter is a major risk to marine wildlife so every beach clean helps. Email Sea Shepherd on: marinedebris@seashepherduk.org

3. Always take home or dispose of your (hopefully recyclable) waste properly

To prevent pollution of our water courses. Rubbish dropped inland invariably ends up in streams and rivers, flowing on into the ocean, causing untold harm to our fresh water and marine ecosystems


Ecotricity and Sea Shepherd UK have been partners for many years – if you switch your energy supply to Ecotricity, we’ll donate up to £60 to Sea Shepherd UK on your behalf.

Climate Clock

The Climate Clock is a version of the Doomsday clock that has been running since 1947 - this tracks the risk of global man-made disaster, through man made technology (like nuclear weapons) - displaying the minutes and seconds left before midnight, when disaster strikes. The climate crisis is a small part of the calculations made.
The climate clock uses a similar approach, but, focuses only on the climate crisis - which is the biggest and most urgent existential threat we face.
"The Climate Clock is a countdown to the biggest man-made disaster we face - but also a measure by which we can track our progress - moving from fossil to renewable energy. It shows we have no time to lose - the clock is ticking…" Dale Vince, OBE.
Ecotricity is a sponsor of the Glasgow Climate Clock that will run every night until COP26.
