Calling all scientists, researchers, analysts and holders of traditional knowledge
Scientists : this is a call for action - shared by Environmental Investigation Agency
"Calling all scientists, researchers, analysts and holders of traditional knowledge
A group of 15 scientific experts from five continents have worked to develop a ‘Scientists’ Declaration’ <https://www.plasticstreaty.org/scientists-declaration/> on the need for global governance of plastics, which outlines the scientific consensus on this topic and provides recommendations to policy makers as to what should be included within the scope of a new global treaty on plastics.
The declaration is now open to endorsements from all scientific experts from around the world. While the declaration will remain open to endorsements indefinitely, the number of signatories will be announced on Wednesday February 16th and taken to the UN Environment Assembly and associated pre-negotiations. It is therefore critical to garner as much support in the coming days as possible. The sign on form is here. <https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd6z6TBH4qs1A9ete-z6PfVJibK6uKirFqGCSXVseNS_A1WEw/viewform>
