ISWA World Congress 2021
The ISWA World Congress is the flagship event of the International Solid Waste Association where practitioners, policy makers, researchers, and academics from across the world gather to network, collaborate, learn, and inspire!
The next ISWA World Congress is being held in Athens, 4-7 October 2021, hosted by the Hellenic Solid Waste Management Association (HSWMA) and Welcome Ltd. The Congress with an overall theme of “From waste management to a circular economy – the road ahead” will include keynote and plenary sessions by invited speakers, and concurrent sessions with oral and poster presentations by the participants.
The current COVID-19 pandemic still brings a lot of insecurities for in person events being able to take place, including the World Congress in Athens. The congress will be available in-person and hybrid version. Should in-person events not be allowed in October, the World Congress will be held entirely virtually.
The registration for the World Congress is now open, for information on the venue and to register, please go to www.iswa2021.com
Destination Athens, Greece
We are really excited to announce that ISWA World Congress 2021 will be held in Athens. Greece has timely taken all necessary measures that effectively slowed down the spread of Covid-19, in the country.
With equal measures of grunge and grace, Athens is a heady mix of ancient history and contemporary cool. Athens offers a variety of things to see and do, and most of the times, under favorable weather conditions. The city is considered one of Europe’s safest capitals. The location of Athens offers an easy access from all over the world. The metro system, an efficient public transportation system and a compact city center, all make moving around Athens easy and convenient.
