Future of Waste is a global collaborative platform that showcases projects and smart solutions that show waste can be a restart.
Future of Waste gathers people who are looking for a helpful network to develop/prototype innovative, sustainable, concrete solutions for the circular economy. They are looking for tools, support and connections to get more involved or to up scale their personal or professional projects. Future of Waste gathers highly graduated youngsters from the MakeSense Community willing to make senseful changes, and experts and pro bono collaborators who can address technical or legal issues.
During the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, which takes place in Paris from 30th November to 11th December 2015, Place to B offers not only a place to stay, but also a coworking space, a program of events and a “News Fab Lab” about climate and solutions for the ecological transition.
Beyond COP21, Place to B is above all a movement fuelled by all those who want to convey the message in a different way.
The principle of a circular economy is using the waste from one product as a resource for another. It means we stop looking at waste as something we have to dispose, and start looking at it as something we can utilise.
There is a relatively new way in which we can turn sludge from waste water into gas that is the same as ordinary, natural gas and can be used in the same way. Well, its new for humans to use. Nature has been using it since the beginning of time.
