There is little doubt that many within the environmental services industry are like-minded, passionate and genuinely driven by the issues. To meet the environmental challenges we face, this motivation needs to be channelled through a pragmatic approach.
Effecting sudden sweeping change is unrealistic. The change agenda is very much about the development and migration of systems and processes over time to increase efficiency and minimise the impacts of human activity on the environment, all within our existing commercial and legislative frameworks.
However, perhaps the biggest obstacle is that it requires a change of mindset for the general population. It is the behaviour of residents as consumers where the process of behavioural change needs to accelerate if we are to succeed in realising a more circular economy.
Whitespace Connect is a hub for waste management professionals that brings these threads together.
The Whitespace Connect events are organised on a regional basis and take the form of one-day seminars. Speakers and presenters may be from any part of the community.
Whitespace team members, our customers in local government and industry, as well as our strategic partners, are all involved in delivering a structured program of presented content alongside informal Q&A sessions, with complimentary refreshments and food.
