The Government of #Curacao recently reiterated its ambitious efforts to fight plastic pollution. In a webinar (see link below) that showcased various local initiatives, it also announced that it joined the Collaborative Action on Plastic Pollution (CAPP) as a launching partner.
March 1, 2021 – Webinar on Single Use Plastic Products
The webinar event event featured several government Ministers who outlined their commitment to eliminate plastic waste and pursue a circular economy.
CAPP co-founders Doug Woodring, Katrina (Kate) Pugh, and Arno Boersma presented the scale of impacts from plastic pollution, but also reasons for optimism through programs like the Plastic Disclosure Project. They also explained the four pillars of CAPP: Global Community, Collaboration Platform, Learning Applied Knowledge.
Curacao’s involvement is driven by Vanessa Toré and Ciaretta Profas who have invited local initiatives fighting plastic pollution to join the CAPP Community.
Through knowledge exchange of practical examples the intent is to accelerate impact in the immense plastic pollution challenge.
