In October of 2014 Zero Waste International Alliance (ZWIA)’s Chair Person, Mr. Richard Anthony, and Board Member Mrs. Ana Carvalho, organized, conducted, and presented a workshop for approximately 250 people at the World Resource Forum (WRF) in Arequipa, Peru. Presentations were also given by Mr. William Worrell of San Luis Obispo, and Ms. Colleen Foster, of Oceanside, both cities in California, USA. The workshop introduced the Zero Waste concept, the importance of it and how the concept can be achieved.

Included in the WRF were examples from different communities and programs around the world. In one of the forum’s scientific sessions, Ms. Carvalho presented “Zero Waste: The World’s Sustainable Growth & Development Processes”. As a final document to the forum, Mr. Anthony and Mr. Worrell, also member’s of the WRF’s Scientific Committee, prepared a final summary of the Zero Waste Workshop.
