WHO WE ARE
Future of Waste is an open community of people curious or passionate about … the future of waste! It gathers citizens, entrepreneurs, innovators and organisations engaged to find, support or create projects and solutions to better manage and transform our waste.
We believe all material flows are reusable resources. Waste can be avoided, collected and sorted, composted, upcycled or recycled to create new raw materials that generate social, economic and cultural wealth for all and preserve the health of humans and their environments.
WHAT WE DO
We connect innovators, entrepreneurs, makers and anyone who want to take action and make an impact for waste prevention, collection, composting, reuse or recycling.
We organize trainings, creativity workshops, events, conferences where anyone can learn, support or create solutions. We design collaborative tools and methodologies to solve the challenges of waste entrepreneurs.
We produce and share open source studies and manuals to co-build on our knowledge and experiences.
HOW WE DO IT
Be driven by social and environmental impact.
Act concretely in a friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere.
Respect all actors and their ideas.
To be at the service of the individual to give him the means to act
Propose and experiment rather than criticize.
Since 2014, 5000 citizens have already supported 600 entrepreneurs and projects during 450 events !
