What is your relationship with plastics?

Our enrichment module, A plastic Revolution continued this week, exploring the role plastics play in our society, how we as consumers use them and our attitudes and behaviours towards plastic packaging.

Join our #PlasticFutures conference this June!

The mission-driven conference will be an opportunity to share research and innovation across disciplines and communities and forge future collaborations to inspire new solutions to end plastic pollution.
