Waste recycling for planetary wellbeing

The project analyses the changes that COVID-19 has induced in Catalan households’ waste generation and recycling behaviour. It aims to identify their sociodemographic and psychographic triggers and to develop environmental indicators of their effects on climate change. The research pays special attention to aspects with long-lasting effects and to contribute to the development of enhanced waste reduction/collection programs, to generate knowledge that contributes to the urgent need to mitigate the environmental impacts of waste to enhance Planetary Wellbeing.
