Join them every First Thursdays for a series of events ranging from talks, exhibitions and networking opportunities.
Presently, there is a great deal of uncertainty and misunderstandings regarding South Africa's waste management operations. This has left citizens confused and unsure on how best to manage their waste.
The Waste Minimisation and Recycling Interest Group (WMRIG) is an Interest Group of the Institute of Waste Management (IWMSA). The WMRIG, in collaboration with the City of Cape Town, are hosting an information sharing event as part of the First Thursdays initiative. The purpose of the event is to clarify any confusion that citizens may have on managing their household waste.
It is also an opportunity to showcase how the city is embracing Pillar 4 of the newly published Resilience Strategy which calls for a collectively, shock ready city through future proofing urban systems and strengthening individual, family and community resilience.
Six local experts will be sharing short presentations on how waste is managed in Cape Town, what are the social, environmental and economic impacts of waste, and what are some strategies that Capetonians can implement to better assist the City of Cape Town in its sustainability and resilience journey.
Join Workshop17 at 32 Kloof Street from 18:30 - 19:30 where 6 topics will be highlighted and discussed throughout the evening.
