For Humankind, materials have defined Ages, there was the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age…. These days plastics are the key materials for developing our technology and our standard of life. Is it possible to do without them? Which are the alternatives? In this talk we will discuss about how to make plastics more sustainable, the “elephant in the room”.

This lecture, in memory of chemist Alex Hopkins, will be accessible to a non-specialist audience and as much about educating as entertaining.
