Keynote speeches in this session will highlight these multiple perspectives. The session will demonstrate coordinated policies, technologies, research and innovation, business practices, and behavioural change actions and initiatives from national and local government, businesses, communities and youth – promoting local solutions to plastic pollution.
This session will also seek to highlight local solutions with the aim to encourage multi-stakeholder partnerships.
