Event Description

Each person in the EU currently produces 6 tonnes of waste per year. The turning of waste into a resource is an EU priority. In this event the Rediscovery Centre introduced students to the topic of waste, how much we produce and what we do with it. Perceptions of and attitudes towards waste were discussed as well as ideas on reducing, reusing and recycling. This was an interactive workshop with hands on activities.
