The United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western-Europe in Brussels (UNRIC), The EU Info Centre in Reykjavik and Fisheries Iceland will be screening the film Plastic shores (see here: http://plasticshoresmovie.com/ ) with a following debate 8 June, at 20.00 o´clock in Bio Paradis Cinema in Reykjavik. 
The event is organized in connection with the World Oceans Day 8 June. 

The Brussels based UNRIC has organized similar „CINE ONU“ film-debate events in Brussels and other European countries, often in cooperation with the European Union. The film screening-cum-debate on Plastic shores is organized as a part of the promotion of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are expected to be formally adopted by the UN General Assembly in September this year. UNRIC, as well as the UN in general, has already had the opportunity to interact with the EU on the SDGs, not least in connection with the European Year of Development. Another European „perspective“ would be the recent European Parliament vote on the reduction of the use of plastic bag by 80 per cent by 2025. 
Participants in the debate will be Egill Helgason, TV personality, Karen Kjartansdóttir, Spokesperson of the fishery industries, Hrönn Ólína Jörundsdóttir, researcher and myself, Árni Snævarr from the UN. Matthias Brinkmann, the ambassador of the European Union in Iceland will give an opening speech.
