Call for a Working Group: Zero plastic in Islands and Coastal Zones network

ImatgeAfter the meeting in Minorca we continue the effort to launch a working group related to the challenge of reducing plastics.

Plastics constitute more than 60% of the waste that accumulates in the oceans and coasts of the planet, and they represent a growing threat to the entire biosphere.

As demonstrated by the exchanges during the VIII meeting, the majority of reserves are impacted by this situation, and our responsibility as a network is to elaborate a shared diagnosis based on individual and collective experiences and a roadmap to engage solutions addressing plastic pollution.

We invite all the interested BR to participate in the working group process that has 3 initial steps ahead:



i) Before September 15, every interested BR manager should send an email with:

- the points that you consider important for your Reserve

- the team that will be coordinating efforts related to this issue locally, ideally one or two administrators from your Reserve and one or two members of academia or researchers; a hybrid team of 2-4 people by reserve; and

- your ideas and desires related with this working group.



ii) November 19-23


We will have a half day dedicated session during the international conference https://micro2018.sciencesconf.org/



iii) By the end of 2018

We will have the initial content and the formal structure for the working group in order to establish the roadmap for the period 2019-2023;

a meeting will be organized in the first semester of 2019.
