Post Landfill Action Network (PLAN) is hosting its Students for Zero Waste Conference (SZC) 2022 this November! SZC brings together students, staff, industry innovators, activists, and community members from across the country each Fall. Since 2014, SZW has served as a space for community-building and solution sharing to push the movement forward. It prioritizes “walking the walk” of Zero Waste and centering the needs of those most impacted by the Waste Crisis and systems of oppression. 

SZW 2022 is back in a hybrid format! Tune in to the digital conference platform for live-streamed sessions, events, and student panels. Additionally, PLAN will be hosting a small in-person gathering with local campuses in Philadelphia from November 11-13. Check here for more information.

This is the first of a two-part webinar series covering the harmful impact of plastics and applying circular economy principles to reduce plastics in the healthcare sector. The second webinar will take place on 7 December 2022.
