Our oceans are increasingly threatened by the plastics accumulating in marine ecosystems, and research and innovation play a vital role driving effective solutions to this global challenge.
On 29 April 2021, we invite you to attend ‘Voices of the Blue Charter: a marine plastics research showcase'. This unique virtual event convenes 9 Blue Charter Fellows (2019-20), who will be presenting their work to a diverse international audience. They will be joined in conversation by a range of stakeholders from local communities, NGOs, industries, and international organisations such as the Commonwealth Secretariat.
The researchers will present the innovative projects they completed during their Blue Charter Fellowships. Their work covers many topical issues supporting the aims of the Commonwealth Blue Charter, ranging from plastics in fishing supply chains to nature-based mitigation strategies, behavioural change in coastal communities, and alternative applications of plastic wastes.
