|Volunteer at IUCN's 2016 World Conservation Congress|
The efforts are exemplary yet the human factor was so discouraging. At the World Conservation Congress the event managers found that two days into the program they had to provide volunteers to help conference goers be more successful in sorting - and these were all primarily environmental supporters! Then, in an excruciating discovery, a bureaucratic glitch was allowed to prevent the composting intended to make the Congress a Zero Waste event.
There are similar reports out of the 2016 annual conference for the Association of Zoos and Aquariums!
Volunteer helpers at sorting stations is a proven success mechanism if we take advantage of it. Come on gang - let's help us help ourselves!
