Let's Talk About . . . Waste

Join design talks (d.talks) in a discussion on the role of design in an often overlooked topic: WASTE

In two generations, we’ve shifted from refillable glass bottles to single-use packaging. Serial replacement has become invisible.

Our city has reduced tonnes of waste entering the landfill with recycling and composting options. If we envisioned a future of zero-waste, what’s left to be done?

To explore the subject, d.talks is bringing together a panel to talk about waste from different perspectives. The panel includes Lourdes Juan, founder of the Leftovers Foundation; Sharon Howland, leader of program management for waste and recycling at the City of Calgary; Adam Corneil, CEO & Founder of unbuilders; and Sumer Singh, founder of MTHARU, a Calgary based design studio and research lab. Moderated by Jennifer Koole (Rocky View County and member of the Recycling Council of Alberta), together they will explore the possibilities of a waste-free future.

Let’s talk about...waste will take place on Tuesday, September 24, at the Central Library.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. | Program starts at 6:30 p.m.
