4th Webinar of COST ACTION CA 19124


SPEAKER 1: Helén Williams

Short Bio: Helén Williams is an Associate Professor at Service Research Center, Karlstad university, Sweden. For the past 15 years she and her colleague has developed a new research area in the field of Packaging for Sustainable Development. Packaging play an important role in this transformation towards sustainable development and a service perspective helps us focus on what packaging do (protect, facilitate handling and communicate) and not only what it is (a material to be recycled). Understanding consumer behaviour and designing to make it easier for them to waste less is important. She is a frequently invited speaker, to inspire and educate about sustainable packaging development in governmental organisations, in business and research conferences.
