In an interview with Malawi News Agency (Mana) on Thursday, Project Officer for the organisation Geoffrey Mphangamo  said the networking event aims at addressing issues affecting cities as well as promoting businesses involved in the secular economy.

“The event aims at bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders including government officials, city councils, corporate social investment representatives, eco-entrepreneurs in the circular economy sector and potential investors.

The central theme of the event revolves around collaborative thinking and action and it focuses on devising innovative strategies to address our cities most pressing challenges such as waste management as well promoting businesses involved in the circular economy,” Mphangamo said.

Mphangamo: The central theme of the event revolves around collaborative thinking and action.

He added that the event is a follow up on the work the city summits which were conducted in 2023 in the country’s cities initiated particularly in the domain of waste management and promotion of circular economies.

He also said that during the event, a number of activities will take place which include the launch of European Union (EU) funded project.

“Three main activities will take place; first will be the launch of the project financed by EU called ‘Building Better! Post – covid Economic Recovery Through a National Recycling Campaign Project’, this is a four-year project being implemented in the country’s four cities.

“Secondly, we will have a “Green Arena” where entrepreneurs will pitch their innovative ideas directly to potential investors and participants will be evaluated not just on the viability of their business proposals, but also on their potential impact on environmental sustainability,” he said.

One of the country’s renowned Environmental Activists, Matthews Malata hailed WASTE Advisers for organizing Lilongwe think tank networking event.

“The event is a very big opportunity for all players that are working in the waste management sector and secular economy to come together and see how they can collaborate, coordinate and make stronger impact together in environmental management and secular economy,” Malata explained.

WASTE Advisers was launched in the country as an independent organisation in 2018 and its mission is to empower people in the communities to improve their own environment and livelihood by building sustainable sanitation and solid waste management systems.
