Resolutions 2017

At the NFWI Annual Meeting in Liverpool on 7 June 2017 delegates voted to pass two resolutions, which will both now form the basis of new NFWI campaigns.

Plastic soup:

Keep microplastic fibres out of our oceans

Microplastic fibres are shed from synthetic clothing with every wash and are the main contributors to microplastic contamination of the oceans. The NFWI calls on Government and industry to research and develop innovative solutions to this problem in order to stop the accumulation of microplastic fibres in our oceans.

Microfibres

Alleviating loneliness:

This meeting calls on every WI and the NFWI to work alongside health and social care providers and their local communities to raise awareness of the causes and impacts of loneliness, thus ensuring better identification of lonely people in order to be able to offer them the appropriate support and assistance.
