Eliminating plastic waste: strategies for change with a stockpile of positivity

June 25th, 2024

Presentation by Ryan Collins (Planet Ark)

Creating meaningful change often requires systems transformation and the efforts of a wide variety of people and groups. Planet Ark’s work to reduce single-use plastic waste spans a range of programs that target different audiences with diverse roles in the system, from early learning centres, schools, researchers, and households to small and medium businesses, corporations, government, and media. This talk will outline a variety of strategies and tools that have been employed to improve knowledge, alter perceptions, and ultimately change behaviour.
