The e-waste management symposium provides a platform for stakeholders to come together and formulate collaborative ways that will support prudent e-waste management in the country through the generation and implementation of government guidelines for e-waste management.
The symposium will bring together key stakeholders in e-waste management including the former Permanent Secretary Ministry of Information and Communication Prof. Bitange Ndemo and ICT specialist and consultant Mr. John Walubengo as well as representatives from Oracle and the East African Communication Organisation (EACO) among others.
It will also include the flagging off of a month long awareness campaign and collection of e-waste most of which can be refurbished, reused, or recycled in an environmentally sound manner to make it less harmful to the ecosystem and public health.
