Awareness of the damage caused by plastics in the environment is growing and our need to find ways to reverse it, grows along with it.   

What do we need to do to change the way we think of the products we make? How do we complete the "materials loop" so every product is made with its re-use in mind? How do we make circular design a natural, automatic and self-evident practice accessible to everyone?

Our five panellists come from the arts, the sciences and branding. Each talked
for five minutes about their own plastic dreams.They challenged the way we see
our plastic world and helped us re-think the way we design our products and use our raw materials.

After a lively back-and-forth discussion the entire room joined in for an inspiring evening of great conversation.
