Here in 2020, our priorities are:

Share efforts around the growing problem of plastic pollution, from MACRO to nano, by establishing the Zero Plastic Working Group


From the first steps taken as “Zero Plastic” campaign with the Lanzarote Biosphere Reserve 10 years ago, the “Zero Plastic Working Group” (ZPWG)  was launched in May 2018 during the WNICBR meeting in Menorca. The ZPWG is an initiative of the World Network of Island and Coastal Biosphere Reserves and the Marine Sciences For Society research network. This partnership between local governments and academia welcomes all Biosphere Reserves taking on the challenge of plastic pollution.

Reconnect our split societies through working within a transdisciplinary research&action group of Arts & Sciences & Politics



In the past several years, we happily participated in common actions:

. MICRO 2020 Fate and Impact of Microplastics: Knowledge and Responsabilities.

. MICRO 2018 Fate and Impact of Microplastics: Knowledge, Actions and  Solutions.

. MICRO 2016, the first International Conference on Microplastics.

.  Like the Rio+20 "Coastal Zones: 21st Century Challenges" Working Group, where more than 100 of Us made a nice step forward, leading to the recent publication, "Coastal Zones: Solutions for the 21st Century".

.  Please send us a message through the Facebook Group if you would like additional information, or to share what you consider important.
