Plastics, Climate and the Art of Making Change

As part of COP26 Universities Network, join experts and environmental activists in a series of presentations, films and panel discussions

As COP26 fast approaches, this is a critical time to highlight how the lifecycle of plastics is a significant environmental pollutant and driver for climate change, and that commitments to 'turning off the plastic tap' can contribute to reaching all-important climate targets.

As part of COP26 Universities Network, University of Portsmouth researchers and our international collaborators will showcase the links between plastic waste and climate and give examples from the STEPP (Sustainable Transitions to End Plastic Pollution) project to show how creative methods are being used to tackle the impact of plastic waste in the Global South.

This event will be chaired by James Wakibia, eco-journalist and the campaigner behind Kenya's plastic bag ban. Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion and live Q&A.

Speakers include:

This event coincides with the Portsmouth Climate Festival (22 October - 12 November)
