Since our launch in May of this year, the Plastic Free Jersey team have been working hard to meet the objectives set by Surfers Against Sewage to certify as a Plastic Free Community.

On the 6th December 2018, Hugo Tagholm, CEO of Surfers Against Sewage will award us with our certification.

We'll be celebrating with two unique events

Design Sprint

During the day, we’re hosting a Design Sprint for 30 GCSE & A-Level students. 

Inspired by the sprint process at Google and the framework of Design Thinking from IDEO, we’ll be introducing 3 challenges that Jersey is currently facing in regards to the plastic pollution problem.

The group will then be guided through the Design Thinking process of inspiration, ideation & implementation to come up with innovative solutions for the challenges.

Certification & Celebration

On the evening of the 6th, we’ll be celebrating with all our Plastic Free Jersey supporters at a special event at the Radisson.

We’ll showcase our Plastic Free Jersey businesses, schools & community groups as well as unveiling our latest project and our strategy for 2019.
