“It’s all about plastics”

Hosts: to be announced 

Nowadays, plastic pollution in the ocean is a global emergency. The oceans are receiving several amounts of all manner of plastic debris every day, impacting marine environment and human health. Approximately, up to 80% of the waste accumulated on land, shorelines, the ocean surface, or seabed is plastic. Ocean plastic pollution is a contemporary challenge that has attracted increasing scientific concern, bringing together different initiatives and agreements on an international, national, regional, and local scale, all around the world, involving scientist, governments, and stakeholders.

In the framework of the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) of the United Nations, we invite you to share your research, project and initiatives related to ocean plastic pollution and its impacts on marine organisms, the marine environment and human health.
