The enormity of the Earth’s plastic pollution problem and its global repercussions are so wide-ranging that for the first time ever, ADEX will continue to tackle this epoch-changing problem with a second edition of ADEX: Dedicated to a Plastic Free Ocean in 2021. ADEX 2022 celebrates its 27th anniversary. In addition, the Ocean Partnership Summit (OPS) – announced in 2019 – will commence in 2022. With an array of scientific experts and government officials from all over the world participating in the Ocean Partnership Summit, we hope to come up with more global solutions that will help propel us closer to a plastic-free future.
