UK-India Twin Cities Marine Litter Partnership




UK-India Twin Cities Marine Litter Partnership - is a virtual community platform where members can exchange best practice and form networks to address plastic pollution and reduce marine litter at a city-to-city level.

Our Twin Cities members exchange the latest updates on pioneering innovations and best practice in waste management policies, strategies and implementation – resulting in more robust waste management systems with stronger circular economies. They grow science and innovation partnerships between regions that address the growing issue of plastic pollution on land and marine environment in a tangible and community driven way. By joining the platform, members can take part in and lead interactive sessions, showcase joint initiatives. Current hot topics range from digitalising waste management, turning waste to resources, stronger community engagement to increasing recyclability and reducing waste. 
This is a real opportunity to make a positive impact, protect our planet and environment from the growing menace of plastic pollution.
