Zero Waste Ontario Conference
Lakehead University, Orillia Campus
Thursday, June 15 – Friday, June 16, 2017
Zero Waste is a policy that requires all resources, organic or non-organic, to be used and reused productively, maximizing their recovery and reintegrating recovered materials back into the economy: no resources are sent to landfills or incinerators.
The goal of the Zero Waste Ontario Conference is to educate and activate participants to create sustainable waste solutions and circular economy communities. The conference will provide a forum for business and community members, researchers and policy makers (municipal and provincial) to exchange knowledge, collaborate, network, and share effective strategies to reduce waste.
The conference will also advance discussions about how we can facilitate, accelerate and support progress towards a zero waste community; highlight innovative programs, practices, and research that advance progress towards zero waste and circular economy communities; and identify the best strategies/practices for using the shared research and knowledge to inform provincial policy and program implementation.
