  • Global Perspectives on Marine Litter

  • Marine litter and plastic pollution is a shared, global issue, but its adverse effects vary from region to region. How do we cooperate to understand both our part in the problem, as well as in the solution? What is the role of the new global agreement on plastic pollution? What are our tools for change? We are dedicating this year's conference to the theme of global perspectives.
