Zero-waste: Reality or Fantasy?
Science & Policy Exchange (SPE) and Climatable hosted a two-hour public forum “SPEForum: Zero Waste Cities - Reality or Fantasy?” on June 4, 2019, at BAnQ, Montreal, to learn and discuss the challenges and opportunities that come with transforming into a zero waste city. This was an opportunity for the public to ask questions and engage with leading experts in research and policy to help answer them. The panelists were Alex Tyrrell, leader of the Green Party of Québec; Mariève Isabel, Montreal Urban Sustainability Experience, McGill University; Sophie Bernard, Department of Mathematics and Industrial Engineering, Polytechnique Montréal. The forum represented a policy, production, and consumer perspectives - to address how we can achieve
our ambitious sustainability goals.
