Webinars 5 and 6: The State of Waste

YCAN is excited to present a two-part mini-series The State of Waste which will focus on waste, recycling and the circular economy.

The State of Waste will take a deep dive into all things waste-related from both a Victorian and a local perspective. We know that many members of the community are deeply invested in reducing their waste footprints and these webinars will provide you with an opportunity to ask our experts all of those niggling questions about waste and recycling that we know many of you have.

Webinar 6: A local perspective
With Sophie Green from the City of Yarra.

Webinar Two: Biochar for a Sustainable World

Biochar is a form of stable carbon produced from organic matter that represents a practical, localised opportunity for carbon sequestration. It is also tremendously beneficial for soil health. Dr Morphett runs a facility on behalf of the nearby City of Manningham which produces biochar from the municipality’s green waste marketed under the brand Green Man Char.

This is the second in the YCAN Climate Solutions Webinar Series and you are most welcome to participate.
