What are businesses doing to reduce their plastic footprint across supply chains? What responsibilities do citizens have? Are governments moving quickly enough to provide the necessary political and legislative frameworks in which action can take place? What innovations will facilitate the necessary shifts in consumption patterns?
This evening debate will bring together prominent speakers on the topic of marine litter and plastics – a relevant issue for Texel and its neighbouring islands of Terschelling and Vlieland, after a major incident earlier this year when 270 containers fell from the decks of one of the world's largest cargo ships, washing plastics and other consumer goods onto their shores.
