Submit your abstracts before 24th June 2022 to participate in this edition of the Online Conference –>  Extended Deadline 1st July

Join ISWA’s Young Professionals Group for their 5th Annual Online Conference, on 22nd July 2022!

A special focus will be given to the citizens that are not able to provide their ideas and vision to an international audience. Citizens, informal workers, and interdisciplinary experts like sociologists, architects, designers, and philosophers who want to share their views toward a circular world will have the possibility to introduce it in a special session of the conference. The objective is to give a voice to those who do not have a voice!
