Illegal dumping is on the rise across Philadelphia, adding to health concerns, blight, crime, and lower property values. Join us as we learn about the root causes of this issue, how it’s affecting our neighborhoods, and as we explore possible solutions.
At this free event you will have the opportunity to:
- hear presentations from local activists and community leaders (speakers TBA soon)
- play our Trash Academy games!
- connect with others who care about this issue
Light dinner will be served.
Trash Academy is a collaboration of community members, artists, activists, educators, students, and others who care about finding solutions to Philadelphia’s trash and litter crisis. We complicate the issue of trash and explore solutions through games, activities and presentations. Learn more at trashacademy.org.
