Join the UK Zero Waste Alliance to end waste through community action.

This conference will bring together people from across the UK to  understand how we can work together to change the way we think about “waste” and to challenge the systems that create it.   Whilst we still need to change our waste habits, it’s hard to zero our waste when many areas don’t have good kerbside collections,  there is a mountain of packaging on our food and wall-to-wall adverts urging us to buy.     Where are the main areas that the community can make a difference?   What works? And how we can make more impact by working together through community action.

Zero Waste Alliance UK Conference and AGM, 11.00- 3pm Saturday 10th November

Greenpeace, Canonbury Villas, Islington, London N1 2PN
