African Waste Week 2015

The Hon. Minister Edna Molewa this week stated that government is waging war on waste and prioritising contributing to the development and growth of the recycling economy. Therefore, as a local government official you are going to be under pressure to ensure that you are not only reducing waste-to-landfill but realising commercial benefit from the waste in your municipality.

African Waste Week is designed specifically to help all stakeholders benefit from the R100b potential in the waste economy. Through local and international experts you will learn how to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills and realise the value it has.

During the event you will also be exposed to insights into the key legislative factors governing waste management and also how best you can plan the future of your waste management.

There is no better 2-day event for you to be able to network with and learn from your peers and the private sector.

Sustainability Week 2015

Advancing the Green Economy through the sharing of knowledge across disciplines and sectors, and by actively seeking to accelerate the total number of projects undertaken under the heading of sustainability, Sustainability Week will once again prove to have a catalytic effect. Where government officials, private sector investors, business operators, professionals, researchers, and NGO’s converge to engage on this critically important, and most fundamental consideration – sustainability.

In 2015, Sustainability Week will through its innovative construction truly reflect the interconnectedness of the issues – the cause and effect of actions, and the need to balance interests in a bid to achieve the most appropriate approach in all cases. Sustainability is not a quick fix or a one-size-fits-all solution, it is about a process of reaching decisions, with due deference to the interests of all stakeholders, including those not in the room. For the first time delegates will be able to attend sessions of different seminars as these are segmented and offered in multiple programmes.

The construction allows people from different sectors to encounter the opportunities and challenges from one another’s perspectives, a primary step towards reaching consensus. In 2015, Sustainability Week welcomes African Capital Cities Sustainability Forum, an event led by the City of Tshwane, and which will see high level delegations from around the continent converge on the CSIR Convention Centre, to deliberate on shared experiences and perspectives. This significant pan African dialogue will lay the foundation for expanded African cooperation at the city level, and at the urban scale. In addition to stellar line ups at the 9th annual Green Building Conference, and extended programmes for Energy and Water, three new seminars are introduced in 2015: Mining, Manufacturing and Infrastructure. See you at Sustainability Week 2015 – It starts here!
