The North London Waste Prevention Exchange, NLWA’s flagship event, ran for the fifth year in March 2019. The conference attracted 119 delegates, and a panel of experts from the UK and abroad explored the theme, ‘Re-imagining waste: moving away from single use towards a circular economy.’. A workshop in the afternoon also gave delegates the opportunity to put learning into practice and consider how best to help residents make the right choices around plastics.
Slides from the morning are available via the links below:
- Patrick Mahon, Waste and Resources Action Programme: Resources and Waste Strategy
- Lisa Foster, Coca-Cola: A sustainable packaging strategy in support of a circular economy
- Tim Cooper, Nottingham Trent University: Consumers and the throwaway culture: victims or culprits
- Jürgen Blondeel, KOMOSIE: Reuse in Flanders: success factors
- Terry Tudor, University of Northampton: Reuse in the circular economy
The afternoon consisted of a workshop led by Ricardo AEA, which focused on what local authorities can do to tackle single use plastics in the context of the circular economy.
