Organized by the Zero Waste College and University Technical Committee (ZWCUTC) of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), this workshop will showcase zero waste practices and strategies to take waste reduction to the next level on your campus.

Best practices from different entities across the U.S. will be presented along with opportunities for interaction among individuals with different backgrounds, knowledge, and experience in practices and topics relating to zero waste. Join us to learn from individuals who are highly involved in waste reduction and zero waste at colleges and universities and beyond.

Presentation topics include: key local and national subjects affecting waste reduction in the higher education setting, climate change & zero waste, strategies to finance zero waste programs, best practices for move out day, and more.

Following the workshop will be a walking tour of zero waste practices at Harvard University.
