WEEE Centre Kenya hosts the first African E-waste Conference

For three days in August 2021, WEEE Centre Kenya proudly hosted the first African E-waste Conference, addressing the increasing waste streams from electronics, raising awareness on existing and emerging recycling technologies, and initiating networks on the topic of regulatory frameworks, standards and
practices, research and innovation, logistics, problematic fractions, awareness creation, and circular resource management.

We were humbled by the engagement from all experts, 46 in total, with a 40/60 ratio of female/male speakers. The interest was exceeding our expectations and we are very happy about the interest from the public, resulting in 800 people registering for the event.

In our summary report, you will get some highlights. We also encourage you to visit our Youtube channel, where you will find clips covering all topics and views of the experts: https://www.youtube.com/c/WEEECentre As there is so much to learn and share, we are looking forward to repeating this success next year. So kindly mark 9-11 November 2022 already now in your calendar!
