TPP Research to Policy Engagement Session with Dr. Lily Pollans

May 13, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In her research, Dr. Lily Baum Pollans argues that, through municipal waste management, cities have potent agency to alter the structures that permit endless consumption, ultimately slowing, and maybe even reversing, the unsustainable one-way flow of materials through the economy. Waste policy-making and waste research can be messy and demanding. But the climate emergency and the many related ecological and social crises caused by our globally extractive and exploitative economic system demand this kind of complicated, and sometimes actually dirty, work.
