Wyndham Waste Alliance: Litter-Ology

The Wyndham Waste Alliance is an initiative that aims to build the skills, networks and capacity of local Wyndham residents to tackle the waste crisis. Building on the work of our Litter Blitz groups, the Alliance aims to address the crisis at a strategic level, advocating for change and action from local and state governments and businesses.

The Alliance meets the fourth Thursday of the month at the Westend Business Hub in Watton Street, Werribee and is always open to new members joining. Each session will include a presentation and/or workshop from a guest presenter, followed by an open discussion on the progress of the group’s objectives and priority areas for action.

On Thursday August 24, environmental psychologist Rob Curnow will be in conversation with WRA Project Officer, Jess Fairfax. Rob will chat about his book Litter-Ology, and his research into why people litter. We will draw on his findings about the power of social norms, and discuss ways to promote behaviour change through promoting personal responsibility and using rewards and penalties to keep public places clean.

Hard copies of the book are currently out of print, however the ebook can be purchased here: https://www.amazon.com/Litter-ology-Understanding-Littering-Secrets-Public-ebook

Bring a small plate to share for dinner.
