Event Details

Global waste and circular economy conference Opening the Bin 3 comes to Lancaster. Full programme to be announced in April 2023.

In April 2017 close to 100 scholars from the social sciences and the humanities from all over the world met for the first time at Lund University to discuss waste, culture and society during the Opening the bin conference in Helsingborg. The second conference Re-open the Bin was held online in May 2021, hosted by the University of Gothenburg, Sweden and attracted over 100 participants online. Both conferences were organized by a constellation of waste researchers. It is now time to Open the Bin again.

Opening the Bin 3 – Waste, economy, culture and society: ‘One World, one Bin?’ will take place at Lancaster University Management School, 15-17 Jun 2023. The full programme and times are still to be confirmed. Booking is now open.
