Student Zero Waste Conference

The Post-Landfill Action Network (PLAN) cultivates, educates, and inspires the student-led zero waste movement. They will hold a Students for Zero Waste Conference October 11 through 13. The first evening will be an “un-conference” peer-to-peer session for students to take the reigns and create focus groups based on their particular Zero Waste interests, guided by PLAN staff. The main conference day is October 12 at the University of Pennsylvania Houston Hall.

The agenda includes panels with industry experts, practical workshops, two specialized roundtable sessions on the circular economy and the plastics industry, a repair activity fair, and more.

The six-year old nonprofit organization is dedicated to fostering the student-led zero waste movement on college and university campuses. With a network of more then 200 U.S. and international member campuses, they aim to deepen student understanding of zero waste and environmental justice and guide student action on campus.
