Description"Learn more about how KAUST works towards sustainability. The key objective of this visit to the KAUST Recycle Center is to provide general awareness towards recycling, an important element of sustainable community. Normally most people rarely give a second thought to garbage. We throw away what we don't need, and it is ""out of sight, out of mind. The purpose of this event is to show to the visitors, the downstream side of waste management i.e. what happen with waste after being collected from the house bin. This program will include: Guests welcomed to central area. Introductory talk by Jacqueline Piper: “Why closing the loop is important.” Main talk by Mohammad Al Shawaf: Waste and recycling at KAUST, and the new markets KAUST’s recycled materials go to. Guests move on to a tour of the facility and education center to enable our community members to see behind the scenes and see first-hand what happens to their waste once it is picked up from their homes. Audience: Members of the KAUST community of all ages are encouraged to attend We are running two of these tours. Please check WEP712-B if this event is fully booked."
