The Plastic Panel Presented by Vierdaagsefeesten
15:30 - 16:30
DeLaMar Theater (D5 Panel Room) | Marnixstraat 402, Amsterdam
Plastic is a material our planet cannot digest, and only a small amount of all the plastic produced is recycled, the rest ends up in landfill, in the street or in the natural environment. The result is that huge amounts of plastic are polluting the planet and its waterways, threatening the environment and even our food supply.
This panel puts plastic under the microscope, explaining the global scale of the problem and looking deep into the different solutions festivals can implement. How feasible to re-use, recycle, and redesign the production processes of your festival? In this panel you ‘ll see new ways of dealing with (single- use) plastic at your event that are also relevant and applicable to numerous other situations.
