  • Dr. Cat Acheson - Moving Towards Sustainable Consumption: How can we make waste history? (12/10/2022)

    Dr Cat Acheson is a PhD researcher in the Science, Society and Sustainability Research Group and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of East Anglia, whose work primarily focuses on SDG12 (Responsible Consumption and Production).
    Cat will be speaking about her work on the "Making Waste History: Innovation for sustainable consumption" project. The project aims to investigate how Local Authorities can collaborate with the communities they support, to reduce household waste and promote sustainable consumption.
