Environmental justice and the changes needed to achieve it start from our communities. Therefore, we invite you to a training that covers the current state of the plastic waste crisis on the Island, what you need to know to act, the measures that have been taken from the point of view of public policy, and the platform created by already established actors. It will be provided on two dates, Friday, 13 and Saturday, May 14, 2022, from 10AM-12PM. Both dates will feature the same workshop. Register today in our portal.
