About this Summit Location

The location of our 2023 Wind summit is an ideal location for this timely and noble summit on plastics. Kisumu is one of the major victims of plastic pollution and mismanagement of plastic wastes, so this location is very ideal for the summit theme and vision.

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.
