Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference in Malaysia 2021 (HIC MY 2021) is just around the corner and Leave a Nest Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. is honoured to announce the panelist for Session 2 entitled Circular Waste Management Towards a Sustainable Community.
With the theme of ‘Off-grid Innovations’, Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference in Malaysia 2021 will bring together leading academic scientists, researchers, corporations, government agencies, startup, educators as well as school students to discuss the potential technologies and solutions to solve issues in society such as energy management, waste management, mobility and accessibility. Through the discussion, we hope to propose good solutions towards creating a smart community, smart City and hopefully a smart nation.
It is increasingly evident that the adoption of sustainable production and consumption patterns and the proper management of solid waste can significantly reduce impacts on both the environment and health. But how exactly are we going to do that?
This sub theme will discuss the sustainable solutions to effective waste management in a community and ways to reduce plastic waste and landfill without doing more harm to the environment.
