Today marks the start of the Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences (AESS) conference at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. The theme this year is “linking rural & urban societies & ecologies.”
If you read this blog for discussions of waste and waste management, well, this AESS is the conference for you. Several of us are participating in Flows of Waste panels. The first, on organic waste, meets Thursday at 11am. The second, on e-waste and heavy metals, meets Friday at 9am. The third, on solid waste management, meets Friday at 11am. I’ll be discussing historical trends in the Chicago metropolitan area’s waste management at the third panel.
These are only three of the many panels at AESS; for a full list, click here.
