7th International Marine Debris Conference
The CSIRO marine debris team attended the 7th International Marine Debris Conference (7IMDC) this week, the world’s longest-running international conference series dedicated to the issue of marine litter and plastic pollution.
The conference took place in Busan, Republic of Korea from the 18th to the 23rd of September 2022.
The 7IMDC builds on the momentum of past IMDCs by bringing together governments, industry, academia, civil society, and all relevant stakeholders, to discuss the latest science, strengthen collaborations, find solutions and catalyze action to address the urgent, global problem of marine litter and plastic pollution.
This year Denise Hardesty, Qamar Schuyler and Lauren Roman all presented multiple topics to audience members from all over the world. Also presenting were the lovely Kathryn Willis and Kelsey Richardson who have recently finished their PhD projects with us.
Well done to all involved!
