Plastic Smart Cities is the knowledge sharing platform on plastics, where all stakeholders join together for a Plastic Free Ocean. Here we connect problem owners - primarily Cities and Tourist Destinations - with Best Practice solutions to collectively achieve No Plastic in Nature by 2030.
The Plastic Smart Cities initiative supports WWF's No Plastic In Nature agenda, while also directly aligning with seven of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's). The SDG's are a collection of global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015, that serve as the blueprint to achieve a more sustainable future for all, working to address global challenges related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.
Plastic Smart Cities adopt plastic solutions that advance SDG 6 - Clean Water and Sanitation; SDG 9 - Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure; SDG 11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities; SDG 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production; SDG 14 - Life Below Water; SDG 15 - Life on Land; and SDG 17 - Partnerships for the Goals. All Best Practices featured on the Plastic Smart Cities platform align with at least one of the global goals.
