Plastics and Environmental Trash

September 22, 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Mānoa Campus, On Zoom

In recent decades, people living in the Southeast Asia have witnessed major transformations in their lives and livelihoods. This series of seminars will focus on a variety of issues—all of which have a plastic connection. The first webinar introduces the expanding problem of plastic waste in the region and community and government action to reign it in. The following webinars talk about the growth of fisheries and aquaculture, the expansion of oil palm and rubber plantations, and the politics of conservation and heritage areas. This series of four webinars will explore how communities in the region are experiencing the economic, social, and cultural dislocations of these transformations. Speakers: Doug WOODRING (Founder & Managing Director, Ocean Recovery Alliance); Tiza MAFIRA (Co-Founder & Executive Director, Indonesia Plastic Bag Diet Movement); Marian LEDESMA (Zero Waste Campaigner, Greenpeace Southeast Asia); Quach Thi XUAN (Vietnam Consultant, Pacific Environment). Moderator: Jennifer TURNER (Director, China Environment Forum & Manager, Global Choke Point Initiative, Wilson Center).
