Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful and Derry City and Strabane District Council invite you to attend our City2Sea: Pathways for Litter Conference in The Guildhall, Guildhall Street, Derry~Londonderry, BT48 6DQ on Monday 22nd October 2018.
This conference is an opportunity for local authorities, businesses, NGOs and other engaged stakeholders to come together and examine the various issues around river litter and the potential solutions presented.
This year’s conference, featuring a range of international and national contributors, will be hosted in the grand surroundings of the Guildhall in Derry/Londonderry. The theme is very timely – Pathways for Litter and Single Use Plastics. TV coverage such as Blue Planet II andSky Ocean Rescue, and initiatives like the UK Plastics Pact, has ensured that this issue has never received so much media attention. Today it is firmly placed in the public consciousness. It is no surprise, therefore, to see it rising on the political agenda, both in Europe and at home, with the EU Waste Directive covering litter for the first time ever and interventions on plastic very much to the fore.
Join us as we hear from a brilliant line up of speakers including Eunomia Senior Consultant, Dr Chiarina Darrah; Councillor Rachel Woods, Green Party; Sinead McCoy, An Taisce; Dr Ian Humphreys, Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful; Jim Keys, Zero Waste North West and Sean Lynch, Open Litter Map.
