Participants indicated where they saw their main work focus (red dots on the right white board), with most participants ending up in the system-description part, while a few placed themselves also into the "bottleneck" part and the "alternative Trajectory" part. For the underlying diagram, see slide 5 in this presentation. On the left, Sergio Martinez adding ideas to the road map.

The Tuesday afternoon Session 6 was very productive with the whiteboard filled with thoughts on the road map and the white paper many times.

Participants collectin 6-months, 2-years and 5-years goals for the road map.

The hashtag #lineinthesand provides several cartoons illustrating the plastics challenge and options to address this challenge.
