Upsides from the Covid-19 pandemic

Although the upsides to lockdown have been few and far between, one is that people have become experts with online communication platforms like Zoom. This has had a massive, positive impact on the growth of our BITA Global Forum. Whereas once we would have faced an uphill struggle to make people realise that the initiative was viable without face-to-face meetings, we are now expanding our forum to include even more people and nations.

The Forum was first set up as a platform to discuss the issues and potential solutions that are at the forefront of national conversations – plastic pollution and mental health.
