Virtual Event Bennington College

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | Beyond Plastic Pollution is an environmental policy course that focuses on the systemic reasons why millions of tons of plastics enter the ocean each year. This cutting-edge class will focus on how plastic pollution is a climate change issue; how the plastics industry spins the myth that we can recycle our way out of the problem; environmental justice and the health impacts of plastic production and use; alternatives to plastic; and most importantly, what you can do to address this growing problem. This will be a particularly useful class for those who want to tackle this issue in their own community, state, and nation. There will be a strong focus on public action.

Class meets every Wednesday evening on Zoom from 7-9pm ET from September 1 through October 13, 2021.

$100 to audit; $400 to receive credit

Registration opens May 17.
