Any movement starts with you, yes YOU as an individual. We are the change agents of our time and every big movement starts with one small step. In our first Love Zero Waste Live episode, you’ll learn more about mobilising others for collective action.
Our guest is Melati Wijsen of Bye Bye Plastic Bags, an organisation founded in Indonesia, and in the meantime a global movement, with 50 teams all over the world, that is working towards a world with no plastic bags. Melati and her sister Isabel Wijsen founded Bye Bye Plastic Bags back in 2013. Together with many supporters and partners, they have been working on the frontline, advocating an official ban on plastic bags in Bali. Last year, the official ban on single-use plastics (plastic bags, straws, and Styrofoam) was enforced by the Balinese government. And what’s more! Melati just launched YOUTHOPIA, a program for equipping youth with tools and skills to become the next generation of changemakers.
Watch the stream to learn more about how to make change happen, how to mobilize and engage your community, and much more!
Love Zero Waste live is broadcasted every Friday in April, stay tuned for upcoming sessions!
