His work on plastic pollution has had a global impact. His commitment and efforts have earned him the “Climate Hero” title from the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP). Doug is also currently part of the UNEP’s Southeast Asia advisory team, SEA Circular. He is also an awardee of the Prince’s Prize for Innovative Philanthropy and a leading expert in plastic pollution in Asia.

Earth.Org will speak to Doug about the health of the oceans during COVID-19 and how we can build a stronger “blue economy” post-pandemic through more effective plastic waste management and other innovative solutions.

This will be a relaxed fireside chat; a 20 minutes interview followed by 40 minutes of Q&A with a small & engaged audience.

Topics we’ll cover:

  • The future of plastic waste in the ocean post-COVID-19
