A series of one-day seminars designed to equip delegates with the essential tools needed to successfully meet the challenges created by the government's new waste strategy, is being organised by environmental communications specialists, EnviroComms.
The seminars, taking place in six locations across the UK between September 24 – October 9, will bring together some of the industry's leading experts to discuss the issues local authorities face with the introduction of the government's new waste strategy, including:
· Pay as you throw (looking at how this has been introduced successfully in Belgium)
· Getting the press on side through micro marketing
· New methodologies in public consultation
Designed particularly for senior waste and recycling managers from within local authorities, or anyone interested in this field, the seminars will provide an in-depth focus on the implications and impact the government's new waste strategy will have on current policies and future planning.
Emphasis will also be placed on the importance of communication techniques needed to defend public investments in recycling and gain unilateral member approval as well as ways of getting the press on-side.
With pay as you throw becoming a strong possibility in Britain, delegates will get a chance to hear exactly how it works in Europe and how it could succeed in the UK.
The seminars will be held in: London on 24 September, Bristol on 26 September, Cardiff on 27 September, Telford on 28 September, Manchester on 3 October and Belfast on 9 October.
Spaces at each location are limited and demand is expected to be high so to avoid disappointment, advanced booking is recommended. Places cost £70 + VAT each (£60 + VAT if booked before 30 August 2007). For further information, call 01268 461210 or visit: www.envirocomms.com/seminars
