Workshop: Education in Waste Management and global environmental issues

Chair / Presidente: Rainer Stegmann (DE), Giovanni De Feo (IT)


In order to reach sustainability in all sectors of our life – including waste minimization, emission reduction and new ecological approaches in economics, agriculture and city planning – it needs the conviction, support and activities of people regardless of their profession. In order to reach this goal, adequate education is essential starting from kids in Kindergarten followed by young people in Schools and Universities independent of the subjects they are studying. In this workshop we will present ideas and examples and invite the audience for discussion and input. Introductory lectures:
