African Marine Waste Network Conference

The African Marine Waste Conference (AMWC 2017) is hosted by the African Marine Waste Network (AWMN), which was launched in July 2016 by the Sustainable Seas Trust (SST), Plastics SA and other partners in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

The Network is the first dedicated approach to address marine waste at a pan-African level. This conference provides the next major step forward.

AMWC 2017 will provide a global interdisciplinary platform for stakeholders to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the field of debris and marine waste.

Over the course of the four days, conference delegates will experience unparalleled opportunities for extensive networking, inspiring keynotes, and a comprehensive exhibition floor filled with new and innovative approaches to plastics, with specific relevance to meeting the challenges of waste in African waters.
