What will RWM do for our communities?
The environment has become a real focal point for all our communities in recent years, and with excellent reason. The Clean Air Summit in London in June confirmed to all our local authorities that the environmental quality of our local communities, both with regards to air pollution and waste management, needs to be handled with the utmost urgency.
Only last January it was revealed that London can at times be as smoggy as Beijing, arguably the pollution capital of the world. This immediately shows just how dire situations have become, but the fact that there have been significant changes to British environmental policy shows that the tide is starting to turn. Britain has dedicated itself to eliminating avoidable plastic waste by 2042, as well as cutting down on all emissions and trying to find more efficient and sustainable energy sources for its citizens.
These are amazing goals, but with Britain looking like it will fall short of its 2020 recycling target, the question is raised as to how we can ensure these goals are met. This is exactly why RWM has made local authorities a key market for the event on 12-13 September. Recognising the need to change is all well and good, but without exploring solutions the challenge becomes impossible.
RWM boasts an unrivalled scale this year, as it runs alongside the entire PRYSM Group
environmental portfolio. Having the Contamination Series, Flood Expo, Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering Expo and Future Resource running alongside RWM makes for a huge crossover of information from each industry. Government delegates can explore the likes of the Clean Air Expo after spending time in the RWM halls and come up with clear plans for the development of their communities after the event closes.
In addition, the seminar schedule will provide ample opportunities to sit down and digest real life examples from leading individuals who are currently trying to tackle these issues. Councillor Kye Dudd will be discussing Bristol City Council’s successful Slim My Waste campaign, while Natalie Bennett of the Green Party will be at Future Resource to explore how authorities should approach their sustainable development plans.
Local authorities are not the only ones who can benefit from RWM’s schedule. Businesses who are able to educate themselves on effective waste management and renewable energy projects will be able to aid in the cleaning of our communities and leave a positive impact on the environment.
All of this information is easily obtainable at RWM when it sets up shop in Birmingham’s NEC on 12-13 September. Tickets for the event are completely free and readily available from the RWM website, meaning that excuses not to come along are very thin on the ground!
