Together we are committed to nurturing the growth of ZWDC and - most importantly - the impact of our work on a global scale, led by the needs, unique skills and collaboration of the wonderful zero waste design community.

 

Based in 4 different countries, our collaboration is exclusively managed online. We have been working together remotely since the launch of the collaboration in August 2020, only meeting in person altogether in May 2022. Despite our locations, cultural, and language barriers we managed to set up a digital collaboration process that enables the project to keep moving forward.
