This panel was streamed on June 16th as part of the Global Reuse Summit. Our brilliant speakers talk all about cities – how with growing populations and demands on resources they exacerbate the waste crisis, and could be a key focus area to help us drive the transition from single-use to reuse at scale.

Taking place on June 16th 2023, the  ‘Global Reuse Summit’ was a free digital event for change-makers, business leaders, policy makers and innovators to learn, share and be inspired as we united to drive the transition from single-use to reuse, and tackle the global plastic and climate crisis we currently face.

Hosted LIVE by City to Sea founder and award-winning campaigner and author Natalie Fée, we embarked on a journey to create a shared vision of the future we want and need to see.

The Global Reuse Summit takes place on World Refill Day – a global day of action to help people live with less waste.   

Did you know that City to Sea is a charity too?

City to Sea is proud to bring you the world’s first ‘Global Reuse Summit’ this World Refill Day. Tickets are free but if you are able to, please consider making a suggested donation of £10 so we can continue to make space at the table for those communities who too often are on the side-lines when it comes to discussions on the plastic pollution that they are most impacted by.

(And, if you are a UK taxpayer, your gift will be eligible for Gift Aid, meaning we can claim an additional 25p for every £1 you spend with us, at no extra cost to you!)
