Topic: United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) activities on Waste
By Muhammed Omotola, Programme Officer at the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). His career in UNEP began in the summer of 2001, where he worked briefly with the Secretariat of the Basel Convention developing projects on ‘Handling of Health Care Waste’ and as a consultant in the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention tasked with the successful implementation of a GEF global medium sized project on “Support for the Implementation of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs)”.
Topic: Warp It, A Reuse Network for Organizations
By Daniel Bede O’Connor, Founder and Head of Customer Happiness at Warp It, UK. Warp It is an asset reuse network which makes it easy for organisations to procure or give away surplus items, within their organisation and beyond. The platform improves sustainability and collaboration, whilst reducing waste and unnecessary purchasing. Daniel’s main focus is on the Circular Economy, specifically extending the lifespan of products. However more recently (with the increased time pressure of Climate Emergency) his focus has moved to other areas where he can help expedite sustainability.
