Flourishing Oceans - Plastics and Human Health

The Minderoo Foundation

Contribution, Understand and beat marine pollution

Human health is critically dependent on ocean health and yet we continue to pollute our oceans by massive dumping of plastic waste.

Our proposed Decade Program will act as a lever to reduce plastic pollution by focusing on the harmful effects of plastic chemicals and micro-/nano-plastics on human health through knowledge brokering, developing novel infrastructure and measurement techniques as well as filling research gaps. However, evidence is not enough. We will therefore collaborate and communicate via a Global Network of clinicians, scientists, legal and regulatory experts, NGOs, governments, and science communicators to drive urgent change in chemical regulation and policy.
