Held every four years, the IUCN World Conservation Congress brings together several thousand leaders and decision-makers from government, civil society, indigenous peoples, business and academia to address the biodiversity and climate crises.

Plastic Odyssey has responded to this initiative and we look forward to seeing you at our booth and roundtables to fight together against plastic pollution in the ocean!
