One Health

The Plastic Soup Foundation is organising the second Plastic Health Summit in Amsterdam, on October 21st, 2021.

This year’s theme is One Health, highlighting the synergistic benefit of a healthy environment, healthy animals, and healthy people. We can no longer pretend that damaging behaviour towards the planet advances human health and development – in fact, the opposite is true. This is a critical moment. Plastic shows up everywhere on earth, and through our food, drinks, and the air we breathe micro-and nanoplastics also enter our bodies.

The immense impact of plastics on our health and what it means for the next generation will be presented in for separate session; Exposure and Toxic Effects, Environmental Justice, Plastic and Me, and The Next Generation.
