Planeteers Attend The Fourth Global Plastics Treaty Negotiations (INC-4)

In April of 2024, four of our incredible Planeteers attended the Global Plastics Treaty Negotiations (INC-4) in Ottawa, Canada. This was the Fourth Session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee to develop an international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution, including in the marine environment. Their impassioned reflections underscored the urgency of collective action and highlighted the vital role youth play in shaping a sustainable future, fueling our determination to drive change forward.
