End of Business As Usual in Waste Management: The Role of Young Professionals
Congratulations to the winners!
The Young Professionals Group (YPG) Online Conference is the leading international conference for young professionals on waste management.
The Conference aims to address the issue related to the promotion of the circular economy principles. It focuses on the involvement of new circular thinkers (under 35 years old) involved in research and innovation toward a sustainable solid waste management.
A special focus will be given to the citizens that are not able to provide their ideas and vision to an international audience. Citizens, informal workers, and interdisciplinary experts like sociologists, architects, designers, and philosophers who want to share their views toward a circular world will have the possibility to introduce it in a special session of the conference. The objective is to give a voice to those who do not have a voice!
Date and timing of the conference:
- Friday, 22nd of July 2022
