Empowering Zero Waste Cities through data

Speakers' presentations - 11 January 2022

We live in a world brimming now with data about ourselves, our lifestyles and the impact this has on the planet. For municipalities, there is a huge volume of potential data that could and should be used to help inform the implementation of local zero waste strategies. Yet often the sheer volume of data can be overwhelming, or local officials do not have the tools or understanding on how to capture, analyse and disseminate the relevant data on crucial waste and circular economy indicators.

This webinar explored the answer to these key questions:

  • What kind of data should municipalities be using to inform the implementation of their local zero waste strategies, and how to do this effectively?
  • What tools and methodologies currently exist to support municipality officials to capture and analyse data?
  • How can we improve data accessibility and knowledge to empower whole communities within the transition to zero waste?
