In partnership with the Mutter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, CSSM Managing Director, Dr Marta Guron, presented a talk for the Science on Tap Program on Monday, January 10 at 6 PM EST entitled, “‘Haste Makes Waste’ Management a Matter of Social Equity”. Waste and disposal are a little considered part of our daily lives; where does that old smart phone go when it stops working? Looking at only short-term solutions has led us to social and environmental inequity. Dumping, landfills, metal salvage facilities are often in underserved communities; the interest in profits over people has led us to policies that have given over the control over critical resources to other political entities. This talk will go through these issues and look at the longer term impacts and potential solutions around sustainably sourced critical metals.
