ISWA Video Award Presentation

The award sponsored by ECOMONDO, an event run by Rimini Fiera focusing on the Green Economy in Southern Europe and the Mediterranean, aims at exploring issues of waste  as one of the major global problems of our society in an original, witty way. The style and delivery was completely up to the participants.

The inaugural winning entry, The Magic of Waste, by Aleksandra Borisova, a current Green Chemistry PhD student, and Will Soutter, Chemistry Department Alumnus, is a stop motion animation about the potential of waste, which was selected by a panel of judges from ISWA from a total of 42 submissions.
