This month, the International Conference has arranged a meeting where scientists and researchers from all around the world come to give presentations on plastic prevention. This event allows scholars to display their ideas on plastic pollution and help come up with ways to protect our oceans. The International Conference has a goal of:
“bringing together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Ocean Plastic Pollution Prevention and Management.”International Conference on Ocean Plastic Pollution Prevention and Management
I think this is a great idea because it gives people from all around the world a chance to voice their opinions and provide well thought out plans on plastic prevention. In June, a similar event was held at UC San Diego where participants engaged in a series of virtual short courses, team-based research, and a final two-day challenge to pitch solutions to an expert panel. I participated in watching a few of these events and I learned a lot from some of the ideas they had created.
I am looking forward to seeing the ideas that will be presented at this event and the many outcomes that will benefit from it.
