Plastics and the Environment: Science Meets Public Policy

MIT's Environmental Solutions Initiative hosts a virtual workshop convening scientists, policymakers, foundations and the business community on the issue of mitigating the environmental harms of plastic pollution. “Plastics and the Environment: Science Meets Public Policy” is a two-day workshop to explore opportunities for policy makers and scientists to inform each other’s challenges and questions on plastic use, design, disposal and recycling. Attendees will participate in panel and plenary sessions, converse during and after the conference through online chat-rooms, join breakout sessions with focuses on material science, recycling, and local, national and international policy making, and receive networking information and a documentary video about the workshop.

The workshop will feature a fireside chat between U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan and California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, and a plenary address from Rwandan Director General of Environment and Climate Change Juliet Kabera.
