Mr. Igor Chernyshev, Vice-President of GJASD International, participated in the Show and discussed with Dr Nadia Plata a possibility of launching a project in the Pacific island countries with the objective to create green jobs for the indigenous peoples. GJASD International has participate in all Climate Shows organised since 2018 and friendly relations have been established with Dr. Plata and her Team.
This time, Dr. Plata introduced Mr. Chernyshev to Mr. Jeremy Sadler, INTRON Executive (Australia), who came all the way to Geneva to visit the Show with a great idea of organising one of its future meetings in Australia. Mr. Chernyshev used the opportunity and discussed with Mr. Sadler the initiative of GJASD International of launching a project on green jobs creation for the indigenous peoples of Australia and the Pacific Island countries through their involvement in green tourism. Mr. Sadler welcomed the initiative and offered his assistance in promoting such a project in Australia.
Mr. Chernyshev attended several conferences, of which one was of particular interest as it was directly linked with the potential of creating green jobs through collecting floating plastic waste in high concentration areas before it sinks or breaks down into microplastic. Such jobs can be created thanks to the Manta, a giant sailing boat, taking on oceanic plastic pollution. That concentrated ecology and technology floating factory ship is the first of its kind capable of collecting, processing, and recovering large quantities of marine plastic waste (explore the Manta in videos at: www.theseacleaners.org.
The Conference was organised and delivered by Mr. Yvan Bourgnon, Chairman and Founder of The SeaCleaners - the Swiss NGO that provides solutions on land and at sea to fight against plastic pollution.
