‘Our Waste, Our Responsibility’: Latest activity from CDE India
In latest news from the Culture Declares hub in India, we at the ReReeti Foundation held our second IMACC workshop (Indian Museums Against Climate Change) with our partner museums on waste management recently. This workshop is one of the many sessions that we are hosting under our partnership with Culture Declares Emergency.
‘Our Waste, Our Responsibility’ was facilitated by Subbaiah T.S., who is the co-founder of Bioman Technologies, a model that proves how urban waste issues can be solved in a sustainable way by citizens. His expertise in solving the waste management issues from the root level guided all the museum professionals to develop short-term and long-term goals to work on, which will eventually help them to create an action plan for zero waste generation.
One of the key objectives of the workshop was to monitor and analyse the waste generated across weeks and months by conducting regular audits by museum professionals. We were pleased to have all the museums participating in this activity and discussing specific waste generation problems at their respective organisations. Towards the end of the session, Subbaiah and the museum professionals focused on the quick steps that one can take effectively after this workshop. It was truly a critical discussion which we were happy to facilitate.
We aim to continue working towards turning this initiative into a model that works for all and can be practised by all. It is definitely reassuring to see this project going a long way with multiple partners contributing towards the same vision and intent as ReReeti and Culture Declares do.
