Design, Justice, and Zero Waste Conference at the New School

On May 8th and 9th, 2018, The Tishman Center and GAIA (Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives) will be hosting "Design, Justice & Zero Waste: Exploring Pathways to a Circular Economy" conference and research collaborative.

By advancing a circular economy, we can reduce often-overlooked sources of significant greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, such as those from the supply chain of the manufacturing sector. Reducing consumer and industrial waste will be instrumental in lowering national GHG emissions and could help state and local governments meet emission targets set by the Paris Climate Accords.

Featured speakers include Annie Leonard (Greenpeace), Dr. Mathy Stanislaus (Senior Advisor on Accelerating Circular Economy Practices at the World Economic Forum), Joel Edwin Towers (Executive Dean of Parsons School of Design), and Ana I. Baptista (Chair of the Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management at The New School).
