ImatgeThe past 8-9 July the 2021 Jeju Plus International Environment Forum took place in Jeju in the form of a “webinar” including both on-site participation and video conferencing. The forum was co-hosted by Jeju Special Self-Governing Province, Korea Environment Corporation, Jeju Research Institute and News 1, and sponsored by the Ministry of Environment of Korea.
It gathered experts, business people, activists and all those concerned both home and abroad to identify the fundamental causes and solutions to excessive plastic use. Five biosphere reserves of our Network were invited to participate in the International Protected Area Session "The Role of International Protected Areas to Reduce Plastics", on 9 July: Menorca, Fuerteventura, Principe, Commander and Archipelago Sea and had the opportunity to share the main steps taken in their islands to face plastic pollution, as well as the main challenges and threats of plastic abuse in protected areas. The session was chaired by Dai-Yeun Jeong, Director of the Asia Climate Change Education Center and of the Jeju Secretariat for the Network of Island and Coastal Biosphere Reserves.
