#Microplastics were put firmly on the Agenda last week at #wef23 in Davos, and will now be a top priority at the #UN #Plastics #Treaty negotiations in Paris in May.
Three important figures in the Ocean world went on the record over the last week about the vital need for #Microplastics to be a top priority in the next round of negotiations of the UN Plastics Treaty, which are due to take place in Paris in May, 2023.
Firstly, Ambassador Peter Thomson, #UnitedNations Secretary General's Special Envoy for the Ocean, and Co-Chair of Friends of Ocean Action, during a panel discussion at #wef23, spoke about the Treaty negotiations, and said that "...the process is proceeding very strongly, and I have a lot of hope that particularly Microplastics will get the attention that it needs...".
In a later Global Plastic Action Partnership session, the new Director General of WWF, Kirsten Schuijt, said "Microplastics is probably the one we should be prioritising...from a human health perspective... Its the Microplastics that get into the bloodstream, and recent research is showing that it even ends up most likely into the brain....It also gets into the marine mammals and the oceans with all the devastating effects...."
Finally, Nina Jensen, CEO of REV Ocean and one of the Friends of Ocean Action, made a great Post on this important topic. If you are one of the few people who has not read it yet, check out 👉 https://lnkd.in/ej83WMev
