Plastics for one of the major challenges?

Just saw this WEC Davos report:

Should this be one of our focus challenges? I think someone else mentioned plastics…Was it Sylvia? Ellen MacArthur brings up a good point…one needs to bring together everyone to form a cohesive system level solution or we will never solve this problem. So…we have govt, biz,…what’s our role in the puzzle? If we want the commons and circular solutions from civil society to play a role in the system level solution, instead of more of the same old fragmented solutions alluded to in the report, what do WE, at OSCE Days do?
