Driving for change in plastic pollution

All day on Tuesday 30 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Wear on vehicle tyres is the second biggest source of microplastics washing into the world's oceans. Smart innovation by a team of four young entrepreneurs from around the world now offers hope for stopping these emissions at source. 


Head over to the Earth Optimism website to watch this talk:


Do you have questions for Siobhan Anderson or Hugo Richardson from The Tyre Collective? If so, make sure to come along to the live Q&A session at 8pm on Tuesday 30 March, where they will be answering all your questions alongside Emma Garnett (who spoke about 'Reducing an organisation's footprint') and Heather Koldewey (who spoke about ‘Ocean optimism in a sea of plastic‘). 


This is part of the Choosing Sustainability speaker series - one of the sessions in Earth Optimism's Stories of Hope programme. Why not search for 'Earth Optimism' to find out what else is on?
