The Italian Zero Waste network & GAIA  is organising a national and international conference in Florence from 15th to 17th of September 2012. The event is organised at the same time as the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA) World Solid Waste Meeting in order to send a message to the waste industry to move away from incinerators and landfills and embrace the Zero Waste concept. NO BURN, NO BURY there is a better way!

The goal of this Zero Waste conference is to share the latest best practices from Europe and the world on the 5 Rs; REDUCE, REPAIR, REUSE, RECYCLE & REDESIGN showing that another way to manage waste is possible.

The three days conference will gather more than 50 speakers from Italy and the world and will bring together social movements, policy-makers, waste experts and innovators. To see the draft programme click here.
