Adrian Midwood

Executive Director POI Canada

Originally from the greater Vancouver area, Adrian went travelling at a young age and didn’t stop until he came home and took on this role. He is a 200-ton ocean rated Captain, professional-level scuba diver and small NGO and business owner from his time in the south pacific islands. His experience on and in the ocean gives him the inspiration to fix this issue and his professional background empowers him to understand how.

For the past 7 years, Adrian has worked directly on waste plastic remediation programs such as:

• Developing government programs for Fiji and Tonga on education and waste collection
• Building infrastructure and job creation for local rural communities centered around valuing plastics
• Social enterprise valuing waste plastics to prevent them from entering our ocean
• Creating voluntourism opportunities for people to get engaged on the ground
• A TEDx youth talk
• Collaborating with most major international NGOs and foreign embassies based in the South Pacific on frameworks for waste plastic remediation
