A 3-day deep-dive into the innovation space around plastic pollution.
Solutions to plastic pollution will come through a trifecta of elimination, innovation, and remediation.
At the Innovation Forum, we’ll explore new ways of thinking about the systemic plastic problem, including innovative product design, business models, policy, and community connections. We’ll also introduce you to up-and-coming schools of thought like biomimicry and circular economy. The forum will be your launch-pad to get involved in the solution at a new level.
This think-tank style event is limited to 75 students to ensure robust conversation and collaboration.
LET’S DESIGN A PLASTIC-SMART WORLD.
Ages 15 – 25 Must be able to cover own travel to/from Long Beach, CA. Dorm room bunk and food provided by Algalita.

Artwork by Liina Klauss, a German artist based in Bali and Hong Kong. Her works examine the intersection of culture and nature finding a visual language for the pervasive impact of humans on the natural world. Using marine debris as art material Liina creates everything from delicate mosaics to large scale installations. This series, called Involuntary Pairs, takes a magnified look at marine pollution. In the oceans the left-overs of human consumer culture are merging with nature to a point of inseparability. Involuntary Pairs zooms in on single products found in nature making the magnitude of the global plastic epidemic tangible. @liinaklauss
