India (Online): Plastic Free Kick-off Seminar

Plastic Free Week 2020 logotype

This event is organised by Sweden Alumni Network India – Mumbai Chapter and Idobro Impact Solutions and is open to everyone. 

The Plastic Free Week challenges YOU to live without using any disposable plastics for at least a week. The objective of the challenge is to make each one realise the amount of plastic we are surrounded with on a daily basis. The activities planned for the challenge week aim to create awareness about the negative impacts of plastic on the environment, and at the same time, offer a fun way for the participants to network with each other.

The Plastic Free week will start with a kickoff event. At this event he Consul General of Sweden, Anna Lekvall,  will share some insights from Sweden and sustainability. Then we will learn from a 11 year old accredited plastic expert! This event will see enthusiastic young students showcase their own innovations to combat the menace of plastic. One of them would be a demonstration of making bottle bricks using discarded plastic bottles and other waste material to reduce the plastic being sent to landfills.

Alumni Members of SANI Mumbai and other SANI Chapters would also get an opportunity to share their ideas and thoughts along with the Swedish Institute team who will join from Stockholm.
