Micro 2018 Fate and Impact of Microplastics: Knowledge, Actions and Solutions
Building upon the stimulating work shared during MICRO 2016.
Fate and Impact of Microplastics in Marine Ecosystems: From the Coastline to the Open Sea.
Main topics to be addressed include:
- Marine Ecosystems;
- Freshwater bodies;
- From Macro to Nano;
- Social change and behaviour;
- Human health;
Although impacts of MPs in marine ecosystems have been reported in the literature since the 70s, many questions remain open. MICRO2018 provided an opportunity to share available knowledge, fill in gaps, identify new questions and research needs, and develop commitments to operationalize solutions; MICRO2018 will be a chance to reconvene, share what we have learned, and generate momentum for the work that remains to be done.
