Plastic Fantastic Collaboration

Marine waste is a major environmental hazard around the world. To highlight just how serious it is, Nordic Edge Smart City Innovation Cluster and Fredrik Hermansen's Memorial Fund are collaborating on the Plastic Fantastic Conference.

Plastic Fantastic was a track at Nordic Edge Expo in 2019. During a full day speakers passionate about the world oceans shared their expertise on marine debris. The speakers united behind the programme description:

Every minute, one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our oceans. This negative trend is only set to increase in the coming decades.

This is one of the greatest challenges of our time – and one that coming generations will pay the price for.

A change of attitude towards plastics is required at all levels, in addition to an increased focus on cleaning and following up the oceans. Here's a link to the 2019 programme.

The collaboration continues with a conference programme during Nordic Edge Expo 2020. The programme is coming soon.
