Our facilitator, broadcaster Wallace Chapman

This is the second of our 30 Years of WasteMINZ events. Through these events, there is a strong emphasis on what the future will look like.

Once again we are looking at our transition to a circular economy and in particular the need for “Better partnerships for better outcomes”

The discussion will focus on the supporting and complementary roles that central government, local government, commercial industry and the community sector must play if we are to be successful.
