Waste is an inevitable result of human consumption. In recent years, both municipal and rural waste management are challenged by the sheer volume of waste that is still rapidly growing. The waste disposal system directly affects the hygiene, health, and well-being of our lives. Based on international experiences, no matter how advanced the incineration, landfill, or composting technologies would be, it is crucial to manage the waste generation and recycling. Our guest today is CHEN Liwen, an environmental practitioner from China. After studying abroad, she returned to China and started her waste management project in Chinese villages, where she helped to build the sustainable waste management systems. In today’s podcast, Liwen will share her stories and insights based on her experience from the Nanyu village, Hebei Province of China. If you are interested in Liwen’s projects, please subscribe to her Wechat channel “东西异同” (in Chinese). Here is another report on Liwen’s project by CCTV (in Chinese).
