Case Study

In 2018/19 EnviroFest was at the forefront of the fight against plastic pollution in Tunisia.  We helped to raise the profile of the issue through 25 screenings of 2 powerful documentaries to grass roots organizations, high schools, the general public, bilateral funding agencies and at the British Embassy with the Ministry of Environment.  There were also technical meetings between British and Tunisian waste management experts.

Partners in these events went on to launch their own plastics campaigns; one partner created an original Tunisian documentary on plastics.  With other complementary events, this helped lead to the banning of single use plastic bags in Tunisia in 2020.
