WEBCAST: CEF Green Tea Chat with Neil Tangri

The China Environment Forum is launching a new short-format webinar series in which Jennifer Turner will have one-on-one conversations (over tea!) with leading experts from business, NGO, and research spheres about energy and environmental issues in China and global environmental challenges where the United States and China are key to the solution.

Date & Time

Nov. 19, 2020
4:00pm – 4:30pm ET


Inspired by CEF’s current deep dive into ocean plastics, our inaugural “tea chat” will be with Neil Tangri, co-founder of GAIA (Global Alliance of Incinerator Alternatives), a worldwide consortium of more than 800 grassroots groups, NGOs, and individuals who work to advance environmental justice by strengthening local movements to catalyze waste and pollution solutions. Neil and Jennifer will talk about GAIA’s zero plastic waste work in the United States and Asia and the challenge of moving the conversation about plastics from demand-driven problems to supply-side solutions.

We will take questions from the audience. Please submit your questions before or anytime during the webinar to Twitter (@wilsonCEF) or via email to
