Workshop in Bali
Key decision makers in Bali were invited to participate in the ACT workshop “Plastic Waste to Energy”.
Representatives from the Bali Provincial Government’s Environment Agency, PT PLN, major electricity providers and a large number of NGOs and waste and recycling service providers attended the ACT workshop on Thursday aboard the Foundation’s ambassador vessel, Race for Water.
The workshop, which brought together Bali’s most influential people – those who can make a difference – was led by Foundation President Marco Simeoni and ACT Program Manager Camille Rollin. Local authorities explained that within five months of the ban on plastic bags, straws and expanded polystyrene foam, plastic bag sales had decreased by 20%.
The issues raised and discussed ranged from current waste management systems to initiatives developed by NGOs and the importance of establishing a decentralized plastic waste management system.
