Announcing the 2016 Global Dialogue On Waste - Press Release
Waste is a global challenge with local solutions. Billions of people need solutions to and through waste, and yet they lack access to relevant knowledge and best practices. We believe change and leadership can arise from every part of the society. We believe that anyone working with waste, wherever they are in the world, deserves access to the latest thinking, enlightening case studies and the sheer wealth of experience that others have.
Once again this year, we’re bringing together some of the best minds from around the world to create a #wastedialog.
be Waste Wise’s annual program, the 2016 Global Dialogue on Waste starts on June 8th 2016 and will broadcast live panel discussions and host social media chats every Wednesday until September. All panel discussions will be recorded and all social media chats will be documented and made available to the public for free.
be Waste Wise is a non-profit organization addressing the need for knowledge dissemination in waste management by bringing the best minds in the world together to build a global waste management community. be Waste Wise provides educational resources, direct access to experts and networking for free to build momentum around the global challenge of waste.
This is the fourth consecutive Global Dialogue On Waste, which started in 2013. The 2016 Global Dialogue on Waste will explore the role of waste management in improving well-being through our four themes: Oceans & Plastic Pollution, Making a Case for Waste, Consumption & Climate Change and Future of Waste.
