British Antarctic Survey is hosting a workshop in Cambridge to bridge science, policy and business to explore solutions for reducing and mitigating ocean plastic pollution.

Marine sampling efforts, increasing media awareness through series like BBC Blue Planet II and scientific research on the effects of plastics in the ocean have brought to light the extent of the problem, and have subsequently led to the UK Government announcing a 25 year plan to reduce consumption. Similarly, collaboration is required to effectively find a variety of solutions. Through cross-sectorial presentations, panel discussions and innovation showcases this workshop aims to: •Facilitate knowledge exchange in order to assess gaps and future actions required; •Generate solutions-driven networking to identify opportunities for collaboration.

Attendees are welcome from across all sectors, from industry, policy, environmental organisations and academia.

Speakers and panellists include representatives from Sky Ocean Rescue, Mott MacDonald, Unilever, DEFRA , WRAP, UNEP -WCMC, Green Alliance, Plymouth and Exeter Universities, BAS and NERC .
