MICRO 2018 Fate and Impact of Microplastics: Knowledge, Actions and Solutions
The international conference will take place from 19 – 23 November 2018, in Arrecife, Lanzarote, Spain.
Main topics to be addressed include:
From MACRO to nano;
Social change and behaviour;
While the accumulation of microplastics in marine ecosystems has been reported in the literature since the 1970s, many questions remain open. MICRO 2018 provides an opportunity to share available knowledge, fill in gaps, identify new questions and research needs, and develop commitments to operationalise solutions; MICRO 2018 will be a chance to reconvene, share what we have learned, and generate momentum for the work that remains to be done.
