Waste Wise Debuts with Panel on “Recycling in American Cities” Join in at 2 pm EST today

Waste Wise is a media initiative that aims to tackle the information gap in waste management strategies and solutions using hi-tech and 21st century communication tools.
Waste Wise will conduct online video panels with experts from across the waste spectrum using Google+ Hangouts, broadcast them live, and then publish content for ready use by decision makers, policy analysts, experts and advocates. Through Waste Wise, the goal is to share expertise globally, open up high-quality, leading edge thinking to those who have not had access to this expertise, while also eliminating the environmental and financial costs of global conferences.
GreenDen Consultancy (GDC) is working alongside Waste Wise founders Katrina Mitchell and Ranjith Annepu to stress the need for real, actionable, sustainable expertise on waste solutions. GDC is a pioneering consultancy comprised of an international group of sustainability experts that utilize a ‘knowledge-sharing’ model to provide comprehensive corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability solutions.

Akhila Vijayraghavan, founder of GDC says,

“At GDC, we realize that finding effective waste management solutions is a critical global need and are ready to offer our services on the same. We came across Ranjith’s work and forged a collaboration to manage their communications and press. We are very excited to be part of the campaign and the conversation on waste management solutions.”

Waste Wise debuts today with a panel on:

“Recycling In North American Cities”– July 10, 2013 at 2 pm EST- Join the panel discussion here.

The panel will address recycling in North American cities, and how to improve the collection and processing of recyclables at the municipal level. Additionally, it will provide insights into the opportunities and trends for recycling within waste management in the North American context.

The group plans to run eight features through July and August, in the first rollout. With practical expertise on effective waste solutions being slow to spread, Akhila sees tremendous scope to grow and further the conversation and improve the effectiveness of collaborating on best practices.

“We obviously want to expand the scope and reach of the panels. During the next roll out, I plan on being a panelist or moderator myself, so I’m looking forward to that. These kinds of social media based thought leadership platforms will make current thinking on trends and solutions in urban infrastructure management more accessible.”
