Influencing Policy Change

Influencing Policy Change

Plastic pollution is a global problem, and we at Changing Streams would love you to join us to tackle this issue together. We are building a global community bringing together politicians, scientists and industry for the common good of the planet. 

Collectively and individually, we need to learn the lessons from the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and take it to a higher level to avoid a devastating catastrophe in the future. 

Construction is the second largest consumer of plastic after the packaging sector. According to the latest reports, the growth in plastic production is expected to triple by 2050. Waste is a serious concern, as we generate circa 50,000 tonnes of plastic packaging waste each year in the UK construction sector alone.  

We are particularly keen to engage with policy-makers in international, regional and local governments to work together to reduce plastic and carbon, starting with the built environment. 

The core Changing Streams team is based in the UK in the port city of Liverpool, and with a global vision; this is a collective effort, and we invite you to get actively involved to support the mission to help companies in the built environment design & build in planet-friendly ways which use less plastic and carbon, become more sustainably resilient.
