– Jacqui Forbes (Kaihautū Matua, General Manager at Para Kore)

Stay tuned for posts introducing you to each panelist over the coming weeks!

APPA is a collaborative forum of researchers, educators, scientists, industry and conservationists working to mitigate and prevent plastic-related pollution in Aotearoa and Oceania. Our aim is to engage with policymakers, industry and the public, including tangata whenua and Pasifika leaders, to advocate for, and develop, solutions to prevent plastic pollution while best managing what’s already in the environment.
