At RWM 2015 there will be a search to find the industry’s “rising stars”, as it celebrates innovation and initiative and will identify the top 25 newcomers that can inspire a new generation of resource managers.
Aimed at young entrepreneurs within the industry, RWM organisers, i2i Events Group in partnership with CIWM, are looking for individuals who have introduced new recycling practices within the last five years that are helping to transform their organisation and the industry as a whole.
Individuals based in the UK or internationally who are developing innovative ways to reduce waste, through circular economy approaches are invited to apply via a short registration form on the RWM show website.
Russell Bacon, Portfolio Director – Environment at i2i Events Group said: “As part of RWM’s mission to drive industry growth and innovation we need to inspire and support a new generation of leaders. The rising stars campaign celebrates the dynamic character of this industry.
“Small changes can make a big difference, so no matter the scale of the effort, examples will be judged on how effective and transformative the change has been for the entrant’s organisation and the industry as a whole.”
Entrants should outline the good initiatives being developed to boost recycling. Over the coming months, entries will be reviewed and the Top 25 rising stars announced. Images and video diaries charting innovation will be made available on the RWM website.
The competition will culminate in three finalists being selected to present to a panel of judges at the event in September. The winner will receive a valuable CIWM training package and funding towards their initiative worth over £2,000.
