Public Health & Quality of Life | 2014 Global Dialogue on Waste
Join us for a month-long dialogue on public health and quality of life as frameworks for waste management in June, 2014.
WASTE, PUBLIC HEALTH & QUALITY OF LIFE
In June, 2014, through four live online panel discussions including some of the leading thinkers on waste, public health and quality of life, we will explore short, medium and long term solutions to waste management for public health and quality of life using examples from selected locations around the world.
Join us to hear about and share your own examples on improving public health and quality of life by improving waste management. To stay updated, subscribe to our monthly newsletter or follow us on social media (top right).

Sponsorship helps keep our content free.
At be Waste Wise, we want to hear what is relevant and interesting for you. Based on your priorities and suggestions, we are bringing together some of the best waste management experts, thought leaders and practitioners to discuss the following four topics:
Have we established new norms owing to the lessons learned from COVID-19? Will refill, loop, and other packaging formats take hold in our supermarkets? Will we drive less or drive better? What lessons can we learn from recycling and waste prevention?
In this webinar, our panelists discuss how do we help consumers make the right decisions and to do better to support their ability to deliver decarbonisation.
