Plastic pollution ranging from plastic bottles and packaging to textiles and cosmetics is a complex issue that requires dynamic solutions. Despite the growing global consensus that comprehensive solutions are needed, no multilateral efforts exist to combat this issue until now.
This Earth Day Live session taking place Wednesday, January 26th at 11:00 AM EST will feature international voices leading the charge to advocate for an international treaty banning plastics. Global leaders on multilateralism and pollution controls will provide a comprehensive overview of this treaty, ways that it can develop leading up to UNEA-5.2 and beyond, and how you can support this providential opportunity to take action against plastic pollution.

Juliet Kabera: Director General, Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA)
