Event Description : On the eve of the World Environment Day 2018, the Women in Sustainability (WiS) initiative at the Council of Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) invites you to a screening of the award-winning documentary on plastic pollution - A Plastic Ocean. This will be followed by a panel discussion with sustainability practitioners from Delhi.

Described as "The most important film of our time" by Sir David Attenborough,  A Plastic Ocean , released in 2016,  brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. An international team of adventurers, researchers, and ocean ambassadors go on a mission around the globe to uncover the shocking truth about what is truly lurking beneath the surface of our seemingly pristine oceans. During its four-year production period, A Plastic Ocean was filmed in 20 locations around the world in beautiful and chilling detail to document the global effects of plastic pollution and introduce workable technology and policy solutions that can, if implemented in time, change things for the better. 

“Beat Plastic Pollution”, the theme of the UN World Environment Day 2018, urges governments, industry, communities, and individuals to break up with single-use plastic, which is polluting our oceans, damaging marine life, and threatening human health.

Discussion round-up

About Women in Sustainability : WiS, a network of individuals and institutions, seeks to promote greater participation, inclusiveness, and visibility of women at all levels of the sustainability workforce. Its endeavour is to recognise and recommend affirmative actions to counter the challenges that restrict women from entering the sustainability workforce, taking on leadership roles, and receiving due recognition.
Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) is committed to promoting gender diversity in sustainability public policy and beyond. Our Women in Sustainability initiative (WiS) is committed to change the status quo within the institution and the sector as a whole.

About the Organization : The Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) is one of South Asia’s leading not-for-profit policy research institutions. The Council uses data, integrated analysis, and strategic outreach to explain – and change – the use, reuse, and misuse of resources. The Council addresses pressing global challenges through an integrated and internationally focused approach. It prides itself on the independence of its high-quality research, develops partnerships with public and private institutions, and engages with wider public.

In 2018, CEEW once again featured extensively across nine categories in the ‘2017 Global Go To Think Tank Index Report’, including being ranked as South Asia’s top think tank (14th globally) with an annual operating budget of less than USD 5 million for the fifth year in a row. In 2016, CEEW was also ranked 2nd in India, 4th outside Europe and North America, and 20th globally out of 240 think tanks as per the ICCG Climate Think Tank’s standardised rankings. In 2013 and 2014, CEEW was rated as India’s top climate change think-tank as per the ICCG standardised rankings.
