Making Our Waste Visible & Knowledge Mobilization

Making Our Waste Visible & Knowledge Mobilization In-Person

Community Based Research Lab participatory workshops and Exhibition

While waste is part of our everyday life experience, we distance ourselves from whatever happens to waste after discard, and we believe that the waste management system takes care of it. Engaging with the issue of our waste allows us to draw connections to key societal issues ranging from environmental degradation, poverty and justice, community development, climate change, policies and regulation and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.


Workshops (March 1, 2024)

  • Community Mapping: How various materials at UVic become waste (9:30 - 11:00 a.m.)
