Who & Why

EWAM focusses on the practical implementation of these science-based solutions, in particular in policy development and e-waste system design. Targeted at policymakers and government officials as well as small- and medium-sized enterprises (mostly recyclers, refurbishers and collectors), it provides a neutral platform stimulating fruitful discussion among policymakers and SME operators while also facilitating exchange of best practices
and expert feedback. The vision for the EWAM is to be the foremost forum available for stakeholders involved in e-waste system design as well as implementing solutions to share their knowledge, interact with experts and develop collaborative partnerships fostering high long-term, sustainable solutions and approaches on all policy-related areas related in e-waste - from policy to technology to economics to social aspects

The 2014 EWAM will take place in El Salvador at the Basel Convention Regional Centre in Central America & Mexico (BCRC-CAM). Although located in Latin America, the 2014 EWAM will take a global focus and policymakers, government officials and SMEs from all of the world can submit an application form. The overarching concept will be to replicate the EWAM in different regions, ultimately weaving together academy results and thereby effectively guiding e-waste management dialogue and action at the international level.

For SMEs the participation fee is 150 €.
Participation fee will cover all lunches, joint dinners and site visits for the entire duration of the EWAM.
