Public talk: 'Waste Matters: How to think about Manchester's mess' (Pint of Science 2019)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talkResearch


Pint of Science 2019
This talk will offer ways of thinking about waste issues in Manchester: Why is there so much litter in the streets? Who is responsible for rubbish? What strategies can be used to tackle waste in a consumer society that has reached ‘peak stuff’? To answer these questions, Sherilyn MacGregor will give some examples of social science research being done at the Sustainable Consumption Institute at the University of Manchester, including projects on the ‘circular economy’ and ‘household sustainability,’ as well as government and community efforts to change our relationship with waste.
