The Wales and Ireland Centre's are proud to jointly deliver this
webinar in partnership. Both Centres recognise that partnership
working is not only key to enhancing our member's knowledge, but
fundamental to ensuring our institution remains inclusive,
sustainable and resilient.
Despite being separated by 50 miles of sea Ireland and Wales have
many things in common and are connected in different ways from
our language and legends to our culture and creativity. Whilst the
links between Ireland and Wales are long established both countries
continue to look at new ways of cooperating together and learning
from each other with the waste management and resource efficiency
industry no different. In common with each other both countries have
their sights determinedly set on a sustainable future, this event looks
at the journey, taking place on both sides of the Irish sea as each
country realise their ambitions to create a circular economy.
Delegates attending the webinar will hear snapshots from eight
different speakers (four from Ireland and four from Wales)
representing the public, private and not for profit sectors. Each
speaker will highlight how their organisations are taking action to
deliver sustainable solutions in their own countries, improving the
economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of their
citizens in accordance with circular economy principles.
Attendance is free although in the spirit of Christmas we will be
asking that all attendees make a donation of their choice to WasteAid
An independent charity (non-profit), set up by waste management
professionals to share practical and low-cost waste management
know-how with communities in low-income countries.
