We are delighted to announce our Biennial Conference will take place on the 27th September at the Smock Alley Theatre in Dublin.

Reuse remains a marginal activity in Ireland, diverting less than 5% of all the waste we handle. With speakers from across retail, authorities and research institutes, this conference will explore from all angles in a highly interactive way how to change habits to make reuse part of our everyday lives at home and in business.

Booking is now open via Eventbrite here.

Two ticket types are available – a full day conference and half day (afternoon session).

Those attending for the full day will hear about current attitudes towards reuse and consumption in general, as well as successful campaigns and tools being used to encourage more sustainable behaviour. Speakers include Eamon Ryan TD, the EPA, Oxfam, ReCreate, VOICE, and WRAP UK (more to be announced). This ticket will also include lunch and access to the afternoon session.

The afternoon-only ticket will give access to an exciting journey mapping workshop exploring cultural probes hosted by Simon O’Rafferty as well as talks and a discussion on Cultivating a Repair Cullture, involving the Sustainable Consumption Institute Manchester, Hubbub, Rediscovery Centre and University of Limerick.

Please note free tickets are available to CRNI members only.

We look forward to seeing you there!
