On the occasion of Ocean Week 2021, the Brussels Sewer Museum is organizing a discussion this Thursday 10 June at 11:00 am via the LIVE Facebook event on plastic and microplastic pollution.

Aude Hendrick, the Museum’s conservator, leads this open debate between our two speakers. Gaëlle Haut, European Affairs project manager at the Brussels office of the Surfrider Foundation Europe speaks with Frédérique Ries, member of the European Parliament and member of the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety.
They address the scale of plastic pollution in Belgium and in Europe, the various solutions currently in force or still to be developed, as well as the problem of plastic waste that pollutes aquatic environments. Ask all your questions during the online streaming. Our three speakers will be happy to answer.

This event is organized in conjunction with the exhibition Microplastics: Making the invisible visible that the Sewer Museum is currently hosting. You can visit it until 19 June.
