Waste Watch launches new Education Network

Waste Watch, the not-for-profit environmental charity, is launching an innovative new Waste Watch Education Network, believed to be the first of its kind in the UK. The physical network will allow waste educators across the country to meet in one place and exchange ideas on best practice in waste education. All members will initially meet at the National Waste Educators Conference on December 4 2007. The conference will focus on how waste and purchasing link to school sustainability. Speakers attending the event include Biffa director Peter Jones, and Lush environment officer Melissa Painter. Waste Watch programme manager Damien Morris said: We set up the network after realising there was no channel at the national level for all the committed waste educators out there to come together, share and learn. Essex County Council senior waste education officer Jo Gill added: Im really looking forward to finding out what waste educators from other organisations have been up to and picking up some tips and ideas. The conference is very timely as the sustainable schools framework takes off. Non members are also invited to attend the conference, which takes place in London. For more information about the Waste Education Network please contact Lauren Prince on 020 7 549 0321 or lauren.prince@wastewatch.rog.uk Image: Alys Dunn, Waste Watch Community Programme Manager
