Zero Waste North West invite you to our first public meeting.  It will include speakers from the local campaign against the incinerator at Strathfoyle and international speakers who can put our campaign in context.

The meeting will be chaired by Mary McGuiggan, will  have information about the campaign and how you can help and will include input from:

  • Dr. Paul Connett,  a graduate of Cambridge University with a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Dartmouth College.  In 2006, he retired from his full professorship in chemistry at St. Lawrence University, Canton, NY, where he taught environmental chemistry and toxicology for 23 years.
    He has given public presentations on waste management  throughout the USA and in 50 other countries.  Ralph Nader said of Paul Connett, “He is the only person I know who can make waste interesting.”
  •  Mal Williams, executive director of Zero Waste Wales.  Mal has advised the Welsh government which itself adopted a zero waste strategy in 2010.  Mal has an extensive knowledge of current waste management systems and provides insights on how to drive change and move towards a circular economy with “Zero Waste”.
