2024 APRU Sustainable Waste Management Program - Global ESG and Sustainability Lecture Series (Jul – Dec 2024)


The APRU Global ESG Lecture Series is designed to provide a sound foundation in basic principles of sustainability, and to unify research across ecology, conservation, environmental health and waste management with a focus on the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices.

As a key activity of the APRU Sustainable Waste Management Program, this year’s Lecture Series will be from April to December 2024. The aim is to provide insights into cutting-edge research to the network. Experts from diverse fields and studies will contribute to individual lectures that generate a broad overview of the subject area.

The series is open to academics and students. Participants will be able to learn from and interact with world-renowned experts through a series of lectures delivered via a real-time video conference on Zoom.
