Event description
The UNWRAPPED conference- translating the scientific evidence that food packaging threatens human health.

About this Event

Chemicals leach from food packaging and people ingest nano- and microplastics with their foodstuffs. But what are the human health risks? Together, we explore the science and plan action to protect public health.

Join us for the UNWRAPPED conference June 12-14, 2019. Two and a half days of jam-packed, interactive sessions designed to educate and energize participants about food packaging chemicals and plastics. Located at the state-of-the-art 1440 Multiversity venue in redwood-forested mountains near San Francisco, this international convening will bring scientists, advocates, journalists, science communicators and government agency representatives together to examine the health threats of food packaging.

Leading scientists will release a consensus statement about the health risks of chemicals in food packaging. Journalists will discuss best practices for translating science to effect systemic change. Strategy sessions will foster collaborative science-based solutions among scientists and advocates, toxics and plastic pollution advocates, leaders in medicine and public health, and companies seeking to provide safer products. Participants will leave empowered to use their understanding of the science on how chemicals in food packaging threaten human health.
