Informing Canada's G7 Presidency. A Workshop on Global Marine Plastics Solutions, April 25, 2018
Canada has identified ocean health as a priority issue for its 2018 G7 Presidency. On April 25, 2018, Oceans North and Ocean Conservancy cohosted a one–day workshop in Ottawa that brought together diverse experts, including from the private sector, local and national governments, scientists, and NGOs to inform a G7 initiative to combat marine plastic waste. Participants identified ideas that were categorized into four themes: (1) foundational/ cross–cutting elements; (2) action items that Canada can take on domestically; (3) action items for the G7; and (4) work that is scalable to the global level.
