WoW : Wealth out of waste

General description

Do you ever think about what happens every week to all the rubbish thrown away every day - food, packaging, empty containers, plastic bags?

The world is facing challenges in the form of colossal quantities of waste being generated on one side and the depletion of natural resources at a fast rate on the other side. When we connect the dots we realise that both of these challenges can be converted into an opportunity by shifting our business practices to a circular economy model.

Come and discover Lyon: the French capital of gastronomy, city of Cinema and of lights, full of outstanding french history treasures. Get ready to live a multicultural experience with our awesome organisers, and the other lovely participants.

May BEST be with you!
