Join us during this unique Networking Evening on September 6, 2018

Nearly 10 million tons of plastic enter the world’s oceans every year –  threatening marine and human life by polluting rivers, coasts, beaches, and destroying natural ecosystems. Lack of sound waste management and unsustainable use of natural capital have significant and costly effects on our communities, our health, as well as on the world economy.

What steps can businesses, civil society, individuals and governments take to beat plastic pollution? Are there any best practices?

Our special guest speaker from Sweden, the Swedish Ambassador for the Ocean, Ms. Helen Ågren will help us clarify this and more during her talks on;

Business as usual is not an option! Beat plastic pollution for a cleaner Ocean.
