KNSWB LITTER CONGRESS 2017
LESS LITTER. LIVE BETTER.
Tuesday 25 & Wednesday 26 July 2017
Kirribilli Club 11 Harbourview Crescent, Lavender Bay NSW 2060 (Sydney)
Lineup change: war on waste leader Craig Reucassel to MC the Keep NSW Beautiful Litter Conference
The KNSWB Congress is the premier conference dedicated to addressing the issue of litter in Australia. The two-day program will consist of keynote and case study presentations, and interactive panel discussions.
With an emphasis on thoughtful and research-based methods of inquiry and with input from a range of sectors, Congress is the only opportunity for individuals and groups involved in litter management, prevention and reduction to assemble together in a collaborative environment and focus on littering.
Litter management is an issue spanning multiple industries and interest groups. The solution to keeping litter out of our public spaces requires a holistic approach encompassing behavioural psychology, community engagement, logistics of local governments, technology, education, city planning and packaging design. KNSWB faciliates communication between these distinct bodies to produce a collaborative approach for overall best practice.
Delegates and speakers come from across Australia and each delegate leaves Congress with a deep understanding of the theory behind litter reduction and a comprehensive toolkit of practical ideas to tackle litter in their community.
