Plastic Fantastic

Our oceans are clogging up with plastic waste. Plastic Fantastic is a conference programme at Nordic Edge Expo that puts this pressing issue on the agenda.

Plastic Fantastic will take place at Nordic Edge Expo on 24 September, 2020.

In 2019, speakers passionate about the world oceans shared their expertise on marine debris. Here's a snippet from the programme:

Every minute, one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our oceans. This negative trend is only set to increase in the coming decades.

This is one of the greatest challenges of our time – and one that coming generations will pay the price for.

A change of attitude towards plastics is required at all levels, in addition to an increased focus on cleaning and following up the oceans. Here's a link to the 2019 programme.

The programme for 2020 is coming soon.

Plastic Fantastic is the initiativ of Fredrik Hermansen's memorial fund. The conference was sponsored by the Norwegian Environment Agency.
