The presentation will be given by Dr. Paul Connett, Professor of Chemistry, St Lawrence University, New York. Dr. Connett has researched waste management issues for over 14 years (specialising in the dangers posed by incineration and in the safer and more sustainable non-burn alternatives). He is a well-know scientist, and is currently on a lecture tour in Italy so we are very fortunate to have him in the District. Apparently Dr Connett's "Zero Waste and Sustainability" talk to the UN Division on Sustainable Development on 12th Jan. 2010 was so successful that they now want to work further with him.
The talk will cover how waste incineration affects your health, wealth and environment and look at the environmentally friendly, cost effective, non-toxic alternatives. Dr. Connett will bring examples about how different places in the world are successfully dealing with their waste without incineration, and there will be the opportunity to ask him questions and learn from his vast experience and knowledge.
