Just under four weeks to go until our online convening goes live. Bringing together multiple stakeholders from the private, development, political and finance sectors we will create a new, highly innovative, catalytic fund that addresses the global issues of plastic waste and lack of access to clean water and decent sanitation.

We've invited a wide range of individuals to speak at our convening, all of whom are passionate about what they do and recognise that collaboration will help us move forward in a post-Covid-19 world.
