Event Details

Join design talks (d.talks) in a discussion on the role of design in an often overlooked topic: waste.

In two generations, we’ve shifted from refillable glass bottles to single-use packaging. Serial replacement has become invisible. 

Our city has reduced tonnes of waste entering the landfill with recycling and composting options. If we envisioned a future of zero-waste, what’s left to be done?

To explore the subject, d.talks is bringing together a panel to talk about waste from different perspectives. The panel includes Lourdes Juan, founder of the Leftovers Foundation; Sharon Howland, leader of program management for waste and recycling at the City of Calgary; Adam Corneil, CEO & Founder of unbuilders;  and Sumer Singh, founder of MTHARU, a Calgary based design studio and research lab. Moderated by Jennifer Koole (Rocky View County and member of the Recycling Council of Alberta), together they will explore the possibilities of a waste-free future.
