The annual Kit Strange Memorial Lecture is held in honour of the late founder of the Resource Recovery Forum, an independent platform for waste research, information exchange, conferences and daily news bulletins. Kit Strange passed away in 2011 but is still fondly remembered as one of the first to embrace the idea of ‘waste as a resource’.
This year's lecture will be given by Mike Webster, Chief Executive of WasteAid. Currently, 1 in 3 people globally do not have access to decent waste management services, which has a significant impact on their health, as well as the environment and the local economy - Waste Aid is a charity that helps to deliver recycling knowledge and projects to address this issue.
The event is free to attend and takes place in Westminster at Portcullis House 4-6 pm on Wednesday 6th March.
