This year, we are introducing a new category of be Waste Wise Pioneers, which includes universities & media. Earlier, we had published a list of 30 organizations and 30 individuals which are part of the be Waste Wise Pioneers List.We analyzed 900 social media accounts to find this year ís Pioneers, an increase from 750†in 2016. In its earlier versions, this was called the Waste Influencers List.
We believe change and leadership can arise from†every part of the society.†Communication is†a key aspect in fostering and facilitating such change and leadership. We are publishing this list to encourage an ongoing dialogue and enhance opportunities for collaboration.
To find these influencers and others†who connect the world†to great ideas and solutions, check our Twitter list with the name —Waste Influencers— which is updated constantly. If you think we are missing some, please†tweet at us with their handle.
