Waste pickers: Trekking the city
Waste pickers provide an essential service to cities by sorting and selling recyclables to earn an income. Despite this, they often live on the margins of society, working for extremely long hours in undignified conditions. The voices of waste pickers need to be amplified, and their work recognized. Join us in learning about our cities from waste pickers and their journeys through virtual tours, dialogue, thought-provoking questions and stories.
