Plastic Health Summit

3 October 2019

The Plastic Health Summit brings scientists, influencers and industry from all over the world together and presents the preliminary results of ground-breaking research by ZonMw.

The Plastic Health Summit will be held on October 3rd in Theater Amsterdam. Attendees of this international conference will be the first to hear the initial results of three Dutch studies which map out the human health risks of micro- and nanoplastics. This is the largest-scale plastic research of its kind to date and the first conference that focuses solely on the human health effects of these substances.

These three research pilot projects into the effects of micro- and nanoplastics on the human body are part of a total of fifteen scientific studies financed by ZonMw, a center for health research and care innovation. The studies started in April this year.

The Plastic Health Summit is being organized by the Amsterdam-based Plastic Soup Foundation, supported by ZonMw and the international Plastic Health Coalition, of which WECF is a member along with 11 other environmental organizations and research institutes.
