This event will be a screening of the 2012 docu-feature, Trashed, and a follow up panel discussion with experts in the field of waste management and sustainable development.

In Trashed, Jeremy Irons sets out to discover the extent and effects of the global waste problem as he travels around the world to beautiful destinations tainted by pollution. This is a meticulous, brave investigative journey that takes Irons (and us) from scepticism to sorrow and from horror to hope. It touches on issues such as our waste-culture, on sustainable living and on the incinerator process that is often touted as a panacea to our waste management problem.

The panel discussion will be of interest to anyone invested in the dialogue of sustainable development, and the more specific problems of waste disposal, and will feature:

John Barry, Green Party Councilman and QUB academic

Tim Walker, working in Belfast City Council and a Member at the Chartered Institute of Wastes Management

The film screening will start at 7.30 promptly, and the panel discussion from 9.15

The event is being organised in conjunction with EPLANI, a registered charity promoting the understanding of environmental and planning law and policy in Northern Ireland, with the proceeds of the event to be put back into the charity.
