Details: 

The KNSWB Congress is the premier conference dedicated to addressing the issue of litter in Australia. The two-day program will consist of keynote and case study presentations, and interactive panel discussions.

With an emphasis on thoughtful and research-based methods of inquiry and with input from a range of sectors, Congress is the only opportunity for individuals and groups involved in litter management, prevention and reduction to assemble together in a collaborative environment and focus on littering.

Litter management is an issue spanning multiple industries and interest groups. The solution to keeping litter out of our public spaces requires a holistic approach encompassing behavioural psychology, community engagement, logistics of local governments, technology, education, city planning and packaging design. KNSWB faciliates communication between these distinct bodies to produce a collaborative approach for overall best practice.

Delegates and speakers come from across Australia and each delegate leaves Congress with a deep understanding of the theory behind litter reduction and a comprehensive toolkit of practical ideas to tackle litter in their community.
