About the WIND Summit

WIND represents circularity and the potential to transform our global economy from one of extraction and waste of natural resources (linear), to one of continuous reuse and recycling (circular). Plastics, mostly derived from petroleum products, is one product that is causing problems in our environment and is contributing to climate change. This WIND Summit is convening Planeteers in communities around the world to develop campaigns to turn the tide on plastic.
