The only conference in Australia that’s all about litter
Join us for this years’ KNSWB Litter Congress on Wednesday 31 August – Thursday 1 September 2016 at the beautiful WatervieW in Bicentennial Park, Sydney Olympic Park. We would love to see you there!
Over 30 experts from across the country slated to appear, this year’s Congress is focusing on the best and newest litter reduction techniques, campaigns, and methodologies.
You’ll hear stories about projects that eradicated litter from public spaces, community education campaigns that changed the fabric of a town into one devoted to social and sustainable good, and about how to analyse your litter and waste data to make your litter reduction programs more effective.
We have assembled a program that is going to give you ideas, inspiration, resources and answers to tackle litter in your area.
- Roadside litter
- Engagement and awareness techniques
- LIttering behaviour studies
- Litter audit methodologies
- Community education
- Eradicating litter at beaches and in waterways
- Plastic bags, plastic bottles, and other problem items
- The upcoming NSW Container Deposit Scheme
- Litter reduction in schools
- And more!
If you have any questions about Congress please contact Cass Chester, Conference & Events Manager.
