Breaking The Plastic Habit - 12 months on

Join Canary Wharf Group this World Environment Day, Wednesday 5th June to celebrate 12 months of their Breaking The Plastic Habit programme, as they host a Youth Takeover moderated by Surfers Against Sewage CEO, Hugo Tagholm. They will also be joined by Morgan Stanley, ‘Plastic Game Changer’ Author, Amanda Keetley, and more, as they discuss what’s next in the fight against single use plastic.

Find out more about progress to achieve Plastic Free Community status accredited by Surfers Against Sewage, as Canary Wharf Group share insights into the full impact and lessons learned from the first 12 months of Breaking The Plastic Habit. Canary Wharf Group will also share how tenants and the wider community of Canary Wharf can get involved to ensure the continuation of the programme’s success.

The panel of speakers will discuss their recent achievements and what the future holds as the plastic free movement grows on a global scale, and public consciousness widens to include other climate change issues such as air pollution, the theme of this year’s World Environment Day. The panel will then be challenged in a Youth Takeover - a line-up of Eco-Ambassadors formed by local school children who have initiated their own ‘Getting Drastic About Plastic’ campaign, and will be putting their questions to the experts and challenging them on how they are taking action.
