Open seminar: Beyond recycling, 21 aug
Visit Pop up Reuse Container and stay for an open seminar to learn more about how Stockholm City is working to revolutionize waste management and gain insight into ongoing research about Sustainable Consumption at KTH.
Stockholm aims to become one of the world's most sustainable cities. One step in achieving this aim is the development of waste management that is simple, sustainable and forward thinking. To achieve an effective waste management the life span of furniture, clothing and kitchen accessories must be prolonged. When the same item changes owners several times, consumption becomes more sustainable.
