Meet 'De Gezonde Stad' (Healthy City), a nonprofit organisation which initiates and facilitates local projects with citizens, local governments and local businesses. In this workshop you can experience how one of our projects ‘The Zero Waste Lab’ works! Our first Zero Waste Lab opened in the east of Amsterdam. It functions as a laboratory where citizens get value coins for the waste they hand in. The local businesses that join, give a discount on products in return. The waste will be upcycled and recycled. In this way De Gezonde Stad together with residents, companies and the municipality, works on a circular economy on a micro level in Amsterdam. In this workshop you will find out how the Zero Waste Lab works by participating yourself and we will discuss with you our results, ambitions and challenges. Join us!
We will gather at the office of De Gezonde Stad: SB-3/SB-5a.http://www.degezondestad.org/
