This event is organised by the Sweden Alumni Network South Africa and is open to everyone.
Whilst plastic pollution remains a global issue, it is necessary to recognise the need to understand the unique local challenges faced by those who wish to reduce their use of plastic. Through the use of photovoice, the South African Alumni Network will document the experiences of five South Africans as they attempt to avoid disposable plastics for a week. The project can be followed on Instagram and Twitter and serves as a visual documentation to encourage contextualised approaches to the reduction of plastic use. Conversation is encouraged and will contribute towards a much-needed conversation around the local challenges and perspectives of those who wish to contribute towards an unequivocal eradication of plastic pollution.
