#PlasticFreeWeek challenge 2020
To raise awareness about the negative impacts which plastic has on the environment, the Swedish Institute initiated the global campaign #PlasticFreeWeek challenge – a campaign which ignited the fighting spirit among thousands of people around the world. Very few of them seem to think that a week was enough. Here you can find articles written on the #PlasticFreeWeek challenge in Russia, Peru, India and Kenya, organised by the alumni networks in the countries.
