Plastic Pollution Free Galapagos – From Science to Solutions

In May 2018, in collaboration with the Galapagos Science Center, GCT ran a ‘From Science to Solutions’ plastic workshop on the Islands. It brought together local stakeholders and experts from our Galapagos Day 2017 plastic panel to discuss the vital next steps for plastic management in Galapagos.

The results will be used in the development of a five-year management strategy, including finding alternatives to single-use plastics. We are delighted to say that the workshop was a huge success, with representatives from at least twelve organisations taking part throughout the week. You can find out more about the workshop on the infographic below.
