Panel Discussion

Waste accompanies all human activity. Since the beginning of our civilization, man has aimed to become the master fo this challenge – so far without success. On the contrary: problems are getting worse despite complex, technical solutions. Garbage separation, highly developed recycling processes, product responsibility on the part of the creator, and ecodesign all aim for a society without waste.
Based on our desire for a zero waste society, the discussion with the audience will reflect the reality of waste management and address the question, what we can contribute in our daily lives.
