Event Details

Everything in life has a cycle. We seek to raise awareness in urban and rural waste reduction as well as responsible consumption, and to show that a high generation of solid waste (known as garbage), and its improper handling, is one of the main causes of problems related to health, the environment, society, and politics. These problems have been accentuated in recent years due to the increase in population, production, and consumption patterns. 

Through workshops and a creation of tools that promote the concept of Circular Economy, Responsible Consumption, and Revaluation of Waste, we intend to demonstrate that it is possible to carry out a way of life without waste, where waste is just a part of a new life cycle, not the end. Without affecting the ecosystem, our sole purpose is to safeguard and protect the environment and all of it’s natural resources while using renewable energy.

Gustavo Redín
I’m Gustavo Redín, and I live and work in Quito, Ecuador. I am a lawyer with expertise in human rights, indigenous and environment law, and I’m also a specialist in urban composting. My work history is diverse, though the main focus has been for the protection of the environment. With Epicentre I have developed my skills in waste management, responsible uses of resources, and ways to reduce the waste generated. I am interested in being a part of the program since we have similar ideologies as SG, and I would like to share my knowledge with the younger generations.
