Plastics and micro plastics are currently the concern of politicians, civil society and science at a national, regional and global level.

The Ministry of Environment of Romania and the Ministry of Climate and Environment of Norway invite you on May 22, 2019, to the seminar "How to combat plastic waste pollution in Europe?", which will take place in Bucharest The seminar is funded through the EEA and Norwegian Grants 2014-2021. 

Significant progress has been made in recent years on plastic waste, with the EU drawing up its strategy and working on a proposal for a directive that mainly targets single-use plastics.

Furthermore, at a global level there are positive developments, such as the recent creation of UNEP's Global Plastics Platform. However, the authorities with responsibilities in the field believe that much remains to be done to reduce plastic and micro plastic pollution, at least in practical terms.

In this context, the two ministries, together with Innovation Norway, the Norwegian Environmental Agency and the International Union for Conservation of Nature  (IUCN), are organizing the seminar "How to combat plastic waste pollution in Europe?", aiming to identify solutions and opportunities for the development of technologies in the field.

The event, which takes place at the same time as the Informal Meeting of EU Environment Ministers, will be attended by representatives of central public authorities, representatives of the private sector, of civil society, as well as representatives of the European Commission.
