the plastic problem which affects wildlife, nature and people all over the world. While it is most associated with oceans: 80% of plastic pollution originates from sources on land and is transported to the oceans via our rivers, it is a problem for all ecosystems. The scientific community has only scratched the surface of the medical and environmental implications of plastic pollution and specifically microplastic.
We, our students and I, invite you to joinour symposium to learn more about:
– How plastic impacts our health
– How it affects ecosystems and wildlife
– What challenges we face in the fight for a more sustainable future
– How you can contribute to solving the plastic problem
Get inspired by our panel of experts!
