Are you interested in supporting a zero waste campus? The UW Zero Waste Team wants your feedback on the Strategic Vision for Institutional Zero Waste at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. The survey is open to UW-Madison staff, faculty, and students. Responses will contribute to refining the strategic vision and will be utilized in the next stage, which is action planning.
During the 2022-2023 academic year, UW–Madison began Stage 2: Strategic Visioning of the Post-Landfill Action Network (PLAN) Atlas Zero Waste Program. The Zero Waste Projects Assistants (Rachel Schumacher, Olivia Grose, and Emily Johnson) facilitated meetings with campus stakeholders through a constructive process of reviewing the Stage 1: Zero Waste Assessment, identifying system-wide gaps, and conducting visioning sessions to achieve zero waste. The Strategic Vision serves as a proposal to campus administration for establishing cross-departmental solutions to sustainable materials management. In Stage 3, the final stage of the Atlas program, the UW Zero Waste Team will facilitate a series of strategic planning sessions with key campus stakeholders to establish a Zero Waste Action Plan, including a budget, timeline, and accountability reporting structure.
