Deconstructing Waste: 2019 Environmental Law Symposium 

Under the natural law of conservation of mass, matter is neither created nor destroyed; everything we have ever thrown away is still here with us on planet Earth. In light of evolving California climate and environmental policy focused on air quality, water quality, and environmental justice, this year's Environmental Law Symposium at UC Davis focuses on the human-made law of waste management.

Leaders in government, non-profit and private sectors will discuss the ways we manage organic waste, hazardous waste, agricultural waste and other waste streams, opening the doorway to dialogue about the impacts of dumping on vulnerable landscapes and populations, and how our society can shift from disposal to regeneration in the era of climate change.
