This workshop will examine the topic of waste from a science, policy and creative arts perspective

This free event is open to staff, students and those interested in the waste topic from a science, policy and creative arts perspective.

The event brings together material and environmental scientists with social, policy and waste facility managers and creative artists/students working with waste and recycled materials. The workshop waste theme is Urban Streams & Flows, including Water, Electronic-waste, Nanotechnology/ Biomining and Repair-not-Waste. Following presentations and discussion, hands on workshops and artist exhibitions will explore how materials can be transformed from waste to new products.

The aim of the AHRC-funded Network is to develop a forum for knowledge exchange and debate across art & humanities and science disciplines, with a common focus on waste treatment, management and innovation.
