Description: In this workshop we will facilitate a discussion around how students can lead specific efforts to solve waste issues on their campuses. We start with a short presentation on the global impacts of waste and consumption and provide examples of tangible solutions to each of these dilemmas. The main focus of the workshop will be on empowering attendees to take action on their campuses. We will draw on our national experience with campuses from across the country to highlight innovative ideas for how students can view waste as a resource through which they can generate revenue, save money for students and campus departments, and benefit the environment. Examples include, but are not limited to: move out collection and resale programs, tool and bike shares, repair cafes, clothing swaps, campus thrift stores and more.
Target audience: This session is for everyone who wants to learn more about the Linear Consumption Economy and how college and university students can make change for a more just and sustainable future. Students and non-students are both welcome!
