And we're live - our ZW Live! #webinar "Should the #EU ban all exports of its #waste?" is now in full swing!

Watch it live on our Youtube channel if you couldn't register via Zoom:

@PierreCondamine @msaraswati @FokusNexus3 @Europarl_EN @EU_ENV @RethinkPlastic @brkfreeplastic @CLEAR_Lab_ All systems produce #waste - but how can we "waste well"?

Even with proximity principles in place, waste get side to the populations with the lowest incomes and from whose the biggest efforts are required - food for thought from our speaker @MaxLiboiron.

#WasteTrade #webinar
“Waste exports means creating further impacts on 'sacrifice zones' and communities which are already vulnerable; it is a presumed entitlement.” – @MaxLiboiron
@PierreCondamine @msaraswati @FokusNexus3 @Europarl_EN @EU_ENV @RethinkPlastic @brkfreeplastic @CLEAR_Lab_ @MaxLiboiron @EP_Environment "If you require someone else's homeland to keep your own homeland clean and send them your externalities, you clearly have a problem." - @MaxLiboiron

@PierreCondamine @msaraswati @FokusNexus3 @Europarl_EN @EU_ENV @RethinkPlastic @brkfreeplastic @CLEAR_Lab_ @MaxLiboiron @EP_Environment @ismawati64 @GAIAnoburn Our next speaker, @ismawati64, takes the floor to tells us a bit more about multilevel and multifaceted #waste #colonialism.

#DidYouKnow that besides visible #pollution, invisible toxic pollution and the social injustice of #plastic can be seen across its whole lifecycle?
@PierreCondamine @msaraswati @FokusNexus3 @Europarl_EN @EU_ENV @RethinkPlastic @brkfreeplastic @CLEAR_Lab_ @MaxLiboiron @EP_Environment @ismawati64 @GAIAnoburn @ZeroWasteAsia Astonishing figures and facts from @ismawati64's present on our ZW Live! #webinar on #waste #trade, showing that #plastic waste trade exports to non-OECD countries are on the rise again despite the new Basel Plastic Amendment restrictions 😖

@PierreCondamine @msaraswati @FokusNexus3 @Europarl_EN @EU_ENV @RethinkPlastic @brkfreeplastic @CLEAR_Lab_ @MaxLiboiron @EP_Environment @ismawati64 @GAIAnoburn @ZeroWasteAsia @VSinkevicius @TimmermansEU Our final speaker, Sara Matthieu MEP @msaraswati, mentions the Plastic #WasteTrade Manifesto, signed by dozens of organisations and 36 MEPs, and handed to EU Commissioner @VSinkevicius in September 2021.

@PierreCondamine @msaraswati @FokusNexus3 @Europarl_EN @EU_ENV @RethinkPlastic @brkfreeplastic @CLEAR_Lab_ @MaxLiboiron @EP_Environment @ismawati64 @GAIAnoburn @ZeroWasteAsia @VSinkevicius @TimmermansEU Sara Matthieu MEP @msaraswati highlights that #recycling should be the last thing on the waste prevention to-do list - the prevention aspects of the #circulareconomy should be higher up in the #EU agenda to truly tackle the #waste crisis!

For @MaxLiboiron, EPR must do something good towards waste, but we still can't currently see it due to insufficient proper evaluation.
@PierreCondamine @msaraswati @FokusNexus3 @Europarl_EN @EU_ENV @RethinkPlastic @brkfreeplastic @CLEAR_Lab_ @MaxLiboiron @EP_Environment @ismawati64 @GAIAnoburn @ZeroWasteAsia @VSinkevicius @TimmermansEU And that's a wrap - thanks to everyone who joined our ZW Live! #webinar today via Zoom/YouTube, we loved having you with us and hope you enjoyed the discussion 💚
