WMTC – Let’s get serious about plastic

How can we work towards a plastic smart city?
Gratis, extern reserveren

Amsterdam wants to sort 65 percent of all waste in 2020 – the number is now only 28 percent. Plastic is one of the most commonly used materials in the world, so how can we help and challenge businesses, workers, and residents across the city reduce their reliance on single-use plastics?

Plastic is one of the most commonly used materials in the world. It can be found literally everywhere, from our local supermarkets to the most remote oceanic environments, in which an estimated 8.8 million tons of plastic find their way every year. With covering no more than 3 percent of the land area of the earth, cities house over half the world population. As the world continues to urbanise, cities play a significant part in plastic consumption. From banning of plastic bags to smart recycling centers and collaborating with industries, how can cities play a significant part in reducing plastic waste? And how do we keep the city livable?
