Waste management and environmentalism in China
As the Chinese have become more affluent they have consumed more goods and in turn the volume of waste produced has increased. This free course, Waste management and environmentalism in China, explores how the Chinese can deal with increasing volumes of waste, drawing parallels with the UK experience of waste management.
You will also consider the conceptual tools that can be used to make the cycle of material use and waste production and treatment more sustainable. The course ends with a brief examination of the growth of environmentalism in China.
