Take control of your research photos with Tropy, a tool that shortens the path from finding archival sources to writing about them. Spend more time using your research photos, and less time hunting for them.
But decades of research have demonstrated that local communities have demonstrated the capacity to avoid this “tragedy” through the formation of institutions that are collectively designed, monitored, and enforced. In Elinor Ostrom’s seminal book “Governing the Commons” she argues that by forming institutions that follow 8 principles can allow communities to avoid the tragedy of the commons and collectively self govern collective (or “common pool”) resources.
The current regulation of emissions of pollutants by incineration being extremely limited and not representative of real emissions.
To assess the real impact of waste incineration emissions, Zero Waste Europe and like-minded organisations are carrying out biomonitoring research on incineration emissions across Europe.

THIS IS DISTRIBUTED DESIGN - DOCUMENTARY
In other words, waste generated by Western imperialism or produced for the comfort and consumption of privileged white people ends up being dumped on racialized people, either at home in impoverished racialized neighborhoods, or in the countries of the Global South.
Cargo-cycles and Kinship in Kolkata
The labour of repair rooted in tutelage and kinship, and the loyalties and discontents that surround repair worlds regulate social order. They recast questions of interdependence and difference in cities. Kolkata’s cargo-cyclists and repair workers who assemble and maintain these old vehicles redeem the city from its disrepairs. Their location and lives are read against the history of capital, contemporary infrastructure building and the logistics of labour. While tutelage fulfils the promise of labour for those who were previously excluded from it, the kinship fostered in Kolkata’s repair worlds continues to keep workers at the margins of capital and profits.
An Introduction to the Labours of Repair and Maintenance in South Asia
Waste is fundamentally crucial to environmental discourse both in physical and digital domains. It contains the value, usage, and temporality of things, although many are unaware of how much these phygital wastes contribute to the climate catastrophe. Just from our daily lives, we are in situations that contribute to carbon emissions generated through our devices and internet use. In contrast, other parts of the world, such as Nairobi, the subject of KMRU’s piece, are battling with tactile wastes, surrounded by landfills affecting communities and the life of humans and other species. waste(s) (2021, 15:48 min) seeks to reflect on the concept of pollution. It asks: How is waste created? What happens when waste is thought of in different ways, and can waste be a source? To create the piece, KMRU collaged field recordings of waste(d) spaces, electromagnetic sounds of social media sites, and the digital debris of trashed and recycled audio fragments into new compositions. A juxtaposition between the digital-physical concept of waste, waste(s) is recontextualized as an artistic resource for real and imagined pollutions.
You sort your recycling, leave it to be collected – and then what? From councils burning the lot to foreign landfill sites overflowing with British rubbish, Oliver Franklin-Wallis reports on a global waste crisis
DGOV connects people to discover practices, implement technical solutions and create complex, scalable governance systems that create cohesion and allow people to flourish.
Afinal, o que mudou no Brasil com a PNRS? Os avanços que tivemos foram realmente significativos?
São roupas feitas na China ou em Bangladesh e compradas, por exemplo, em Berlim ou Los Angeles, antes de serem jogadas fora. Milhares de toneladas acabam como lixo escondido no deserto na área de Alto Hospicio, no norte do Chile, um dos destinos finais para roupas "de segunda mão" ou de temporadas anteriores de cadeias de fast fashion.
In Catalonia alone, every day, 720,000 kg of food is thrown away. This wasted food, totaling 260,000 tons per year, is equivalent to the food needs of 500,000 people for one year. Remix el Barrio was born with the ambition to propose a learning space to encourage and nurture new practices based on food-waste crafts. It is the result of a pilot program where various designers learn about biomaterial design and explore projects with food scraps using artisanal techniques and digital fabrication. Remix El Barrio was created in the regenerative district of Poblenou, more specifically in the ecosystem of Fab Lab Barcelona, where designers united to co-produce new forms of crafts from their individual aspirations, benefitting from regular peer-learning sessions, access to machines and tools, and learning from the maker open source culture present all over the place. Each designer has initiated a creative design driven material innovation approach where they identify a recurrent local food waste case, learn about its characteristics, investigate how to best collect and process it, and imagine future applications and material life-cycle narratives.

TOMRA creates sensor-based solutions for optimal resource productivity
We are proud to present you the results of four intense and fruitful years of collaboration of the 18 REPAiR partners and local and regional stakeholders in Amsterdam, Naples, Ghent, Hamburg, Łodz and Pécs.
We have celebrated the ending of the REPAiR project with an informative and appealing one day event. In the morning with inspiring keynotes on the future challenges of the CE from European, Regional and local perspectives. Besides, we discussed with our sister H2020 projects UrbanWins, FORCE and CINDERELA. Also, through an extremely exciting and innovative on-line experience the REPAiR exhibition was shared with participants, presenting the results in detail in virtual exhibition rooms.
In the afternoon, parallel sessions explored the GDSE and the PULL methodology, discussed and benchmarked cities on their way towards a CE, and discussed the ins and outs of the sustainability assessment of eco-innovative solutions. The event was closed with an expert panel discussion on how to make the urgent transition towards a CE happen.
Reparability is a complex issue, and commercial dynamics play a role: for example, to achieve more powerful and compact designs in a cutthroat market, manufacturers may sometimes opt for solutions that compromise a product’s ease of repair.
