As part of the joint research project "PlastikBudget - Development of budget approach and LCA impact assessment methodology for the governance of plastics in the environment", the Kulturwissenschaftliches Institut Essen and Frauenhofer UMSICHT are organising a stakeholder dialogue in Berlin on Monday and Tuesday, 18 and 19 February 2019.
The stakeholder dialogue will bring together representatives from environmental NGOs/civil society, science, industry and politics to discuss plastics issues. The following questions, among others, will be discussed with a total of around 30 stakeholders: What is an acceptable amount of plastics in the environment? What can companies and associations do and what do they do to reduce plastic waste emissions (given certain political conditions)? What communication and implementation strategies are proposed for a plastics budget and what are their chances of success?
