WHO should join: Any interested stakeholder in starting or continuing to reduce waste in schools and communities (i.e. administrators, teachers, custodians, food service employees, parents, community members, and students).
WHY: As part of Wilton Go Green’s Zero Waste Initiatives, the Zero Waste Schools Coalition was formed to create a platform for schools in Connecticut and beyond to connect, learn and share ways to introduce or enhance programming to reduce waste in our schools.
Meeting Agenda: 10-10:15 - Welcome and Introductions - We will also hear quickly from a few organizations that you can consider incorporating into your program/school (Curbside Compost, JunkLuggers and Spruce Fabric Gift Wrap and others)
10:15 - 11:15 For this meeting we are going to have a free flowing conversation as well as small group brainstorms. Bring your ideas, successes and challenges from the year. Just starting out? Bring your questions on how to try and start a program in your school.
11:15 - 11:30 - Wrap Up
We will send updates via email as we get closer to the meeting.
