Plastic pollution is widely agreed to be a constant threat for biodiversity on land and water. Due to the huge amount of plastic used by humans, it is estimated that within 31 years the ocean will contain more plastic than it contains fish. There are 513 million tons of plastic that end up in the ocean. Plastic pollution on the environment and living organisms can be reduced through individuals and governments by reducing plastic consumption and searching for alternatives with things that are easy to recycle and degrade quickly. With this workshop we aim to raise awareness for this issue of major importance for protecting our natural life resources. Together we will develop ideas of what we can do in order to limit the global threat related to the vast use of plastics and present and discuss them with others on the final conference day. The workshop is open for students of all disciplines and especially relevant for students of natural sciences (biology, chemistry, physics), engineering, environmental science and related subjects.
