About The Event


A two-day conference to empower our youth through educational talks, networking, think tanks and workshops regarding the effects of plastic pollution and a solutions-oriented approach.

The conference will give them the knowledge and tools they will need to help join the fight against plastic pollution.

NETWORKING & CONNECTION

Connecting with like-minded people, sharing ideas, staying positive and interacting with those that are already making changes. This Summit will give you the chance to meet others who are as passionate about creating change and finding solutions as you are.

WORKSHOPS & INSPIRATION

A major part of the Summit is dedicated to learning about plastic pollution. Seeing real life solutions that are already taking place will, we hope, inspire you to create your own. You will have the opportunity to pitch your own campaign to a panel of judges who may fund your project.
