TED Talk: Eco Edition Series - Plastic

Posted by Meredith Moore on March 30, 2021

Join us for a TED Talk: Eco-Edition! To complement iSEE's March 2021 Plastic Free Challenge, this month's gathering will focus on plastic waste.

Together, participants will view a prerecorded TED Talk, presented in September 2019 by Andrew Forrest: "A Radical Plan to End Plastic Waste." Afterward, all are invited to participate in a guided discussion and roundtable.

Our co-hosts are Maddy Liberman, Illinois senior in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences and student member of the Zero Waste Sustainability Working Advisory Team, and Shantanu Pai, Assistant Sustainability Researcher at the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center and Interim Zero Waste Coordinator at Illinois Facilities and Services.

Our first meeting united campus and community members for a passionate, respectful, and thought-provoking dialogue about the inseparability of racial justice and climate justice. We hope that everyone is as energized by this talk as we are, and ready to engage in another open conversation!

Sign up to learn, discuss, and connect with peers in a casual, social setting. Grab your favorite snack and get comfortable! Topics and hosts vary each month.
