Ecology Center 2530 San Pablo @Dwight Berkeley
Join us for Part Four in a speaker series on waste on a global scale for an evening discussion on the waste crisis in Haiti. Ann Leonard from the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives will speak about her recent success at removing 400 tons of toxic incinerator ash that was illegally dumped on the beach in Gonaives, Haiti. Tim Krupnik, of the Ecology Center will show slides and talk about the recent conference in Port au Prince that he took part in which focused on plastic waste, environmental health concerns, and recycling. Annie and Tim will elaborate upon the ways in which the emerging global economy has driven a growth in waste and a consequent worldwide health crisis. They will conclude with an update on the World Summit on Sustainable Development in South Africa. Suggested donation :$5, no one turned away for lack of funds. Proceeds will benefit the Zero Waste Fellowship, a project initiated by the Ecology Center Recycling Program and The Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives (GAIA) to train environmental activists from the global south in sound recycling and waste management strategies.
