Getting to Zero Waste

Course Overview

This course will explore all elements of the global waste problem from recycling and reusing, to reducing consumption and production, and the practicalities of getting to zero waste. We will examine the idea of circular economies and circularity of materials, inspired by nature to reduce our waste to zero. Critique of contemporary and alternative processes will be facilitated by reviewing the interconnected social, political, economic, environmental and technical implications. Case studies will be explored in different parts of the world and framed in new approaches to the ecological paradigm of moving from waste as a problem to ‘waste as a resource’.
