EnviroBytes: Tackling the Global Issue of E-Waste

October 26, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

Experience

The issue of e-waste is not one that has received a great deal of attention in the United States, but this matter is having a profound impact on the environment in many countries around the globe, in particular, Ghana. Krobo Edusei, Jr., Executive Chairman, Safebond Limited (SCL) is among Ghana’s most recognized and successful business leaders who has been tasked by the Government of the Republic of Ghana to fix the grave challenge of one of the world’s largest dumping grounds, Agbogbloshie.  Also known as “Toxic City,” this is considered an ecological crisis on par with Chernobyl.  Edusei is applying the work of SCL in Ghana to developing a model that can be used to tackle e-waste on a global scale.

All are welcome and pizza will be served!
