Ocean Plastic Prevention Accelerator

The Ocean Plastic Prevention Accelerator (OPPA) program is supported by The Incubation Network,

a regional initiative tackling ocean plastic pollution, powered by SecondMuse, The Circulate Initiative with support from the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, and Global Affairs Canada.

Indonesia is the second largest country in the world that produces ocean plastic pollution due to ineffective waste management and recycling systems.

The Ocean Plastic Prevention Accelerator is a social innovation ecosystem builder program that fosters

a collaborative network for innovative solutions to build a more inclusive and circular waste economy in addressing the ocean plastic leakage in Indonesia. OPPA works together with businesses, innovators, start-ups, multilateral organizations, and governments, to identify problems and gaps within the local waste ecosystems, and develops solutions to address them. OPPA’s activities have successfully closed gaps through acceleration programs, networking, facilitating collaboration, stakeholder engagement, and supporting government programs.

Klaus Oberbauer

Program Manager

Klaus is the Program Manager for the Ocean Plastic Prevention Accelerator (OPPA) in Surabaya. He enjoys the work as he gets to coordinate an awesome team to support improvements in the local waste management system. Klaus is passionate about connecting people to improve systems. He finds it fascinating to see how much can be achieved through building the right relationships and creating mutual understanding. In the case of OPPA, we do this to create a shift in the economy towards seeing plastic as a resource, rather than waste.

 

Before joining SecondMuse, Klaus worked on the development of social innovation ecosystems. That experience was quite similar to the work at OPPA, and he is fascinated to see how concepts can be adapted from one context to another.
