The 5th Annual Students for Zero Waste Conference (SZW18) will bring together 500+ students, staff, industry innovators, activists and community members from across the country at the University of Pennsylvania on November 2-3, 2018. The day and a half event includes a keynote speech, student-led workshops, professional trainings, hands on sessions, affinity group meet-ups, and panels covering waste and environmental justice, coalition building, and the Point’s of Intervention theory of change.

Choosing the right ticket for you:

We want to make this conference as accessible as possible, and recognize our attendees' varied financial situations. Therefore, we offer several discounted registration options to accommodate different financial abilities. The full cost for a conference ticket is $200, but if this is not feasible for you or your institution/organization, you are welcome to register at one of our reduced rates.
**Early bird pricing ends October 12, after which the baseline ticket price increases to $40.

No one will be turned away for lack of funds. If after reviewing the discounted options, conference registration still poses a financial barrier, please email dru@postlandfill.org to discuss scholarship options.

PLAN Member Schools are entitled to an additional $15 off each registration.
