EPA Regions 1 and 2 hosted the Northeast Forum on Climate-Waste Connections, a series of free web-based training sessions and discussions with experts and practitioners from the Northeast and beyond. The goal was to advance the discussion about materials management and the climate connection in practical ways that will help communities integrate waste reduction and recycling into climate plans. The goals of these training sessions were:
- Bring attention to the climate impacts from managing solid waste and recycling
- Identify issues that would benefit from regional and national collaboration
- Provide tools and assistance for incorporating materials management into climate action plans
The audio recording of these sessions are posted (as mp3 files) along with the powerpoint slides (as pdf files).
By bringing web-based training to your desktop and community, webinars increase the number of people who can participate in the program while minimizing the climate and environmental impacts associated with traditional conferences and trainings.
