COMBATING PLASTIC WASTE IN THE EU: INITIATIVES IN DRIJVEND PAVILJOEN, ROTTERDAM, 11-10-2019 CONFERENCE BOOKLET COMBATING PLASTIC WASTE IN THE EU: INITIATIVES IN FRANCE, GERMANY AND THE NETHERLANDS DRIJVEND PAVILJOEN, ROTTERDAM, 11-10-2019 INTRODUCTION How can we collectively avoid that there are more plastics than fish in the oceans by 2050? With the recent ban on single-use plastics the European Union has set ambitious standards on reducing marine litter, paving the way for the rest of the world. What do the new rules imply and importantly, which innovations can start-ups contribute with? The French and German Embassies to the Netherlands, together with the European Parliament Liaison Office and the European Commission Representation in the Netherlands, kindly invite you to their conference on plastic waste on 11 October 2019. During the conference we will link policy makers with start-ups to discuss best practices, opportunities and challenges of recycling, reducing and replacing plastics. Aside from listening to policy makers and start-ups we want to hear about your ideas! Expect an interactive session with interesting speakers from the field and inspiring pitches from different European start-ups. The conference provides you with an excellent opportunity to share your ideas with a network of relevant organizations, in the run-up to next summit on plastics, co-hosted by the French and Dutch Secretaries of State in 2020.
