Event description

Description

The UK's recycling rate has plateaued at about 45%. Germany passed this many years ago and is well beyond the 2030 target of 65%. How did they do it and can the UK do the same?

Germany turned its waste system on its head 25 years ago. This talk describes what they did and how they got on. (spoiler alert - quite well). Includes wisdom from beer drinking and something for Brexiteers to cheer (wildly) about.

This event is part of Southampton Sustainability Week: 9 days of events taking place across the city. To find out more, go to our website: www.sustainsouthampton.co.uk
