The transformational event, June 5th 3.00pm-6.00pm

Zero Waste Shanghai celebrates Oceans Day by organizing an offline event. We want to raise awareness about the importance of the Oceans in our life and two of their main threats: plastic pollution and the increase of carbon emissions gases.

THE EVENT: Embracing a transformational mindset

Are you engaged in areas of sustainability and innovation? How companies can be more circular and make a positive impact by working in a plastic circular approach? How can reduce their carbon emissions?

On June, Saturday 5th, we will explore how brands can stay conscious about these problems, learn better practices, and take the initiative to make changes happen.

TIME TO SHIFT : 5 informative talks + DIY activities + Meet like-minded friends

We will open the event with an approach to why oceans are important to our life. We will briefly introduce how oceans act a key role in climate change, and how anthropic activities, such as plastic pollution and carbon emission, impact the oceans. Which will eventually turn to us, human beings.

At the heart of the event, we'll find experts from committed companies to B-Corps and innovative start-ups. We will have the opportunity to listen to inspiring people from different backgrounds, who have already implemented successful techniques and changes at different levels. You will find immediately applicable lessons to make your brand more sustainable and drive behavior change at scale.

For closing the event we will have two different activities.

Have fun! You can join for free one of the DIY Workshops by Davines: Cotton Bag or Plant Growing.

Keep learning! Join the MasterClass by Zero Waste Shanghai, you will go deeper into questions like Why are we sorting waste? Why do we need to reduce it? Why do landfills generate Greenhouse Gases? Can plastic really be recycled? What is Carbon Neutrality?
