SZW is PLAN's annual community-building conference.

We convene our network through the Students for Zero Waste Conference in Philadelphia each Fall. Students, staff, industry innovators, organizers, and community members from across the nation gather to collectively envision the future of the movement.

Speaking Events

PLAN can present to your organization, department, or team about anything zero waste. We offer customizable trainings that are program-specific, such as Summer Move-Out Planning, and general inspiration, such as A Zero Waste Campus is Possible.

Beyond Waste Summits

Summits are regional, full-day, highly interactive leadership intensives. Students collaborate on simulated campus projects to understand the systemic impacts of waste and gain experience that is transferable to their own campus.
