Meet us at PolyTalk 2016 in Brussels

PolyTalk 2016PolyTalk is a forum to engage with our stakeholders in a transparent, forward looking dialogue. PolyTalk 2016 focuses on Marine Litter. Get in touch with us and meet us there! We will present our research activities in the field such as the MERMAIDS project.


Entitled “Zero Plastics To The Oceans”, PolyTalk will be held in Brussels over two days and will gather international organisations, government officials, representatives from national environment ministries, NGOs, the plastics industry, as well as the research community.


Marine Litter is one of the largest emerging environmental challenges and needs to be tackled at global, regional and national level. PlasticsEurope is increasingly engaged in protecting the marine environment and encouraging stakeholders from industrial, political, scientific, non-governmental and social spheres to act together to preserve the oceans and coastal areas. With this in mind, we want to address how the plastics industry and its full value chain can support and contribute to the development of action plans against marine litter.


Target audience
Policy and decision makers (EU, national, regional, UN), NGOs, designers and brand owners, plastics value chain

  • Get the latest insights on marine litter solutions at global, national and regional level.
  • Engage with a mix of stakeholders from European and national policy-making bodies, environmental NGOs, science, industry, media and more.
