IIEA Lecture – Designing for Zero Waste: Strategies from New York City

This event is part of the Environmental Resilience lecture series, co-organized by the IIEA and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Introduced by Sharon Finegan from Irish EPA and moderated by Alex White. In the lecture, Clare Miflin argues that sustainable, prosperous, and liveable cities of the future will need to be ‘zero waste’. She highlights that waste is a design flaw and that circular material systems can help regenerate cities, communities, and surrounding ecosystems for a healthier and more resilient future. Furthermore, she outlines the important role that design of the built environment plays in the transition away from a linear economy and towards a circular economy.
