Marine Litter and Micro-plastics Update
On Friday 17th April 2020, the youth constituency organized a webinar together with UNEP Marine Litter division focused on capacity-building of youth wanting to engage in this crucial process within UNEA.
The webinar resulted in several recommendations and suggestions on youth engagement, including but not limited to -
How youth entities can be further inter-grated into the work of UNEP, including special campaigns and initiatives
The need for more "knowledge" and evidence on how marine litter impacts well being of children and youth
Joint partnerships for supporting, showcasing and mobilizing resources for Youth Action on preventing plastic pollution
The constituency marine litter and micro-plastics working group also developed a position paper as follow-up of the 3rd Ad Hoc Open Ended Expert Working Group (AHOEEG) meeting which can be accessed here.
