Description

PLASTIC CRISIS SEMINAR

“PLASTIC IS A PLAGUE ON THE EARTH AND THE OCEAN.” Sir David Attenborough

Ireland is by far the worst creator of plastic waste in Europe, so reducing the amount of plastics we consume is vital. Most especially since China no longer accepts Irish waste. Patricia Mallon and Patsy Puttnam have gathered together leading experts in their field to discuss and debate the way in which we exercise our ‘duty of care’ for our country and our planet. Bringing clarity to the overwhelming confusion that surrounds this issue could hardly be more important.

“IN OUR HANDS LIES THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR OWN FUTURE.”
