About the event

In 2019, the world generated 53.6 million metric tons (Mt), and only 17.4% of this was officially documented as properly collected and recycled. The UK is one of the largest producers of e-waste in the world, with 23.9kg of e-waste on average produced per head, according to the Environmental Audit Committee’s report https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm5801/cmselect/cmenvaud/220/22010.htm  –  that’s almost a third of an adult’s average body weight. In just the first six months of 2021 alone the UK  produced 148,134.09 tonnes of e-waste, the equivalent weight of 15  Eiffel Towers.  Shiv will help us understand what needs doing. If you want to watch online please sign up so we have your email address. We'll email the link the day before.
