Over the past few decades, marine plastic pollution has become a major environmental concern with its impact being felt across the globe. With close reference to approaches in contemporary archaeology, object biographies and psychology, this paper presents the application of a novel type of ‘World Café’ methodology that aims to not only further understand marine plastic pollution, but can be used as a valuable tool to encourage behaviour change. After presenting the research context, this paper demonstrates proof-of-concept through an event involving local people in Galápagos, Ecuador in May 2018, alongside a brief summary of some results.
