More about the event 

How do we significantly reduce plastic waste? 

Join us for Ending Plastic Waste Symposium to find out more about: 

  • The extent of the plastic waste problem
  • The latest research and technology solutions
  • Circular economy and recycling initiatives
  • Bio-derived and compostable plastic innovations
  • Global collaborations for real world impact

The symposium is being held as part of our Ending Plastic Waste (EPW) Mission, which has a goal of an 80 per cent reduction in plastic waste entering the Australian environment by 2030. To achieve this, we need a co-ordinated response across a range of sectors to revolutionise the way we make, use, recycle and dispose of plastic.  

Hear from experts across research, industry and government who are generating cutting-edge solutions across the entire plastic supply chain. This includes advances in plastic design and materials, information for decision-making, and behaviour change. 

More details on the symposium will be announced soon.  

Cost: $580. Student: $200
