Education is the most powerful weapon that can be used to change the world. Nelson Mandela
Knowledge should be accessible to all, especially in the area of environmental protection and waste management.
By 2050, we will have to manage more than 3.4 billion tonnes of waste worldwide (What a waste 2.0 from the World Bank). Some countries will see their amount of waste double or triple. Humanity is moving into a critical phase where the sharing and networking of knowledge seems necessary, if not vital.
Within WASTELAB, we believe that every person who wants to work in the field of waste management (small, medium or large scale) must have access to existing knowledge and tools at both the technical and awareness levels. That’s why we offer advice and training for people interested in these topics and living in places where improved waste management is urgent.
