TKF18/19 - PLASTIC POLLUTION

The over-abundance of plastic in our ecosystem is an economic, environmental, human health and aesthetic catastrophe, posing a multi-dimensional challenge to humanity, often compared to climate change in terms of impact, breadth and complexity.

A challenge of this magnitude requires cross sector collaborations, knowledge sharing and support. At The Klosters Forum, this is what we do.

The Klosters Forum convened a select group of key stakeholders during TKF18/19 to address these issues.

Report

After each forum we produce a written summary of the panel discussions and workshops in order to continue to spread the expert knowledge beyond the TKF Community. Please find the Plastic Pollution Report below.
