The Plastic Avengers Conference
The top 100 independent plastic-warriors came together for the first time at the Plastic Avengers Conference 2019 (PAC19). Their goal: the kick-off to a worldwide transition to a sustainable view of handling plastics.
This years' PAC 2020 in Rotterdam is postponed untill further notice. We are hoping for september. The offline confence is focussed on creating new campaigns: the campaign Hackaton.
Given the corona situation we are preparing online alternatives.

It is the 'power of plastics' that bringthese grass-roots activists together. Unlike many other envirionmental problems plastics is tangible and visible; you yourself can take action straight away. By picking up and monitoring the litter you come across each day. Connecting that street knowledge to lawyers, NGO's, scientists and behavioral specialits is how we make our unique impact.
The conference makes our network thighter, empowers the Plastic Avengers in their campaigns and unites them behind one vision.
Together we formulated 5 principles which should be leading for whoever - individual, NGO, legislator or company- wants to fight plastic pollution; The Plastic Avengers Manifest to which EU vice President Frans Timmermans is the ambassador.
