About YPG

The ISWA Young Professionals Group is made up of ISWA members below 35 years old with a shared passion for Solid Waste Management, knowledge sharing, collaboration and innovation.

In order to join the YPG, you must be an ISWA member and be under 35 years old. All YPGs are encouraged to volunteer for one of our working groups. Requests to join a working group can be sent to: ypg@iswa.org

Our vision is an Earth where no waste exists. Before an exhaustive circular material system comes to fruition, waste should be reduced to a minimum, reused creatively, or recycled efficiently. Residual matter should be disposed of in a safely engineered way, ensuring a clean and healthy environment. All people on earth should have the right to enjoy an environment with clean air, water, seas and soils. To be able to achieve this, we need to work together.

If you would like to join the YPG send your ISWA membership number and proof of age to cmambu@iswa.org and she will add you to our Group.
