Lineke is a Master’s student in European Law.
Anno 2019 plastic is part and parcel of our daily lives. However, the way we produce and use plastics could and should be changed. After having seen the enormous impact of plastic waste in the Caribbean Sea during my last holiday in Panama, I am more motivated than ever to contribute to research in plastic reduction.
By participating in the Leiden Advocacy Project on Plastic I hope to do my part in the ongoing fight towards plastic reduction and create awareness among all people of the negative effects of plastic waste on land and the marine environment.
As a Master student in European Law I have a special interest in the European Union’s ambitious Plastics Strategy. My research will focus on the Single-Use Plastics Directive, which introduces new measures on certain single-use plastic products in the battle against plastic pollution.
