Aftermovie for the 5th Enhanced Landfill Mining Symposium in Leuven (5-2-2020) (made by Stijn van Baarle, Storyrunner). Referring to the EC’s #europeangreendeal the video highlights that the pending #circulareconomy Action Plan suffers from one major blind spot. How can we deal with the landfilled waste of the past, irrespective of the urgent need to avoid new waste creation and disposal in the future? It's not just about waste flows but also about waste stocks!
Taking into account that in Europe there are 12,000 #landfills in areas prone to flooding as a result of #climatechange (cf. lecture Kate Spencer), urgent (policy) action is required.
