In addition to being an unprecedented global public health crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic has also created unforeseen setbacks and challenges for the environmental sector, including the movement to transition away from single-use plastics, improve our ability to collect and recycle plastic waste, and prevent plastic from leaking into our oceans and waterways. In this digital townhall, we will discuss:

• What are the pressing challenges that have emerged for the global movement to combat plastic pollution and waste as a result of COVID-19? What are the biggest setbacks we’re seeing in each sector?

• How are different players adapting their strategies in light of this new paradigm, and what are some examples of support and collaboration that can help us move forward together?

• How will things shift as we begin the journey towards recovery from the pandemic, and how do we work proactively now to ensure a green reset that allows a continued focus on mitigating plastic waste and pollution and that protects livelihoods in both the short and long term?
