The Problem with Plastics

Our project lead, Mark Miodownik, will be talking about the plastic-waste problem as part of this year's Bradford Literature Festival.

Rather than get rid of plastic altogether – such a versatile and necessary material – Mark will introduce the concept of ‘designing-out’ plastic waste, which is the rationale behind the work taking place at UCL's Plastic Waste Hub, while also exploring the science, history, and positives of plastic more broadly.

Join Mark as he encourages us to reckon with our love-hate relationship with plastic, for better or for worse.
