EMEA advisors Harris Eyre and Nathalie Hilmi published by the Psychiatric Times

Psychiatric Times published the commentary “Our Brains Need Us to End Plastic Pollution” co-authored by EMEA Advisors Harris Eyre MBBS PhD,  fellow in brain health at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy, and Dr Nathalie Hilmi, head of environmental economics at the Monaco Science Center.

The authors urge the reader to support the Global Plastics Treaty and highlight that it is imperative to halt the plastic crisis and end plastic pollution:

“We urge all citizens to engage in the Global Plastics Treaty. We appreciate the 2024 World Economic Forum panel on advancing the Global Plastics Treaty, aiming to unlock the systemic change needed to tackle the plastic crisis and end plastic pollution once and for all. By supporting this Treaty, we can help reduce the amount of plastic in our environment and, potentially, protect our brains from its harmful effects. We urge all stakeholders to engage in the Global Plastics Treaty. Let’s work together to safeguard our brains and ensure a healthier future for our children”
