Consumer behaviours around inappropriate disposal of products directly impact on the recycling of waste and wastewater – increasing costs and damaging the environment.
To stimulate cross-sector engagement and understanding of how to (positively) influence these behaviours David Tompkins FRSA is working with Anglian Water on a one-day summit in Peterborough, exploring:
• The science behind consumer flush/throw behaviours;
• How that science has been successfully deployed to change behaviours;
• When other supply chain interventions are needed to deliver the desired outcomes; and
• How different stakeholders can work together to tackle this challenge.
The outcomes from the summit will be:
• Identification of opportunities for cross-sector collaboration and efficiencies;
• Creation of a community of practice around environmental behaviour change in the water and waste sectors.
Call for Expressions of Interest
At this stage we are inviting interested parties to submit a (maximum) 500 word expression of interest, outlining your expertise and/or interest in the topic, and stating whether you would like to present, facilitate or simply attend. The event will take place in Peterborough later this year.

This event is being developed by the Anglian Centre for Water Studies, and will have a regional focus. A combination of presentations and facilitated workshops is envisaged, with total delegate numbers capped at 50. This is a not-for-profit event, but it is likely that a small fee will be payable to cover venue costs.
