PLENARY #1 – Future Focus: Perspectives on Zero Waste

December 1, 2022 from 8:45 am to 9:45 am

Speaker: Rachana Shah, Rafaelo James D. Villavicencio, Nivi Achanta

In recent years, attention has moved from particular items in waste streams, to the underlying cultural and systemic practices that affect lands and people near and far. In this plenary, we delve into tourism waste in the Philippines, complex systems theory, and the role of joy in recrafting narratives on zero waste futures.
