Zero Waste

Students investigate how cities might look if they achieve zero waste. They explore different ways cities are working towards zero waste and create their own plans to present.

Zero waste lifestyles are becoming popular amongst lots of people, and a zero waste city is something many cities across the world are trying to achieve. The zero waste city concept means that cities are planned to leave no negative impact on the environment and that this aspect is integrated in to all decision-making.
