There is a famous saying: It takes a village to raise a child. It will take the entire global village to stop the flow of plastic waste into the environment.


Despite the many benefits of plastic to health, safety, sustainability and convenience, plastic waste has become a challenge in many parts of the world because it is not managed properly. To help address this challenge, it requires a coordinated and transformative way of both public and private sectors - policy makers, researchers, companies that make, use, sell, process, collect and recycle plastics, and consumers.


Featuring key note speeches and in-depth panel discussion among government authorities, NGOs and companies, this event is to showcase what Vietnam is doing to tackle this challenge and share relevant experiences from Europe.
