Seminar: Beyond recycling, 21 august
Stockholm aims to become one of the world's most sustainable cities. One step in achieving this aim is the development of waste management that is simple, sustainable and forward thinking. To achieve an effective waste management the life span of furniture, clothing and kitchen accessories must be prolonged. When the same item changes owners several times, consumption becomes more sustainable.
Speakers: Katarina Luhr, Vice Mayor of Environment and Climate Stockholm Stad, Karin Bradley, Programme Director Mistra Sustainable Consumption KTH, Göran Finnveden, Vice President for Sustainability KTH and Karin Sundin, Technical Officer Stockholm Vatten och Avfall.
