Daniel Rotman


Daniel has a background in all things mind related and an interest in all things sustainable.

He studied Cognitive Science and went on to complete a Masters in Conflict Resolution. The conflict he sees as the most pressing today is with our relationship to waste.

He currently is a Field Tech with Tetra Tech EBA and volunteers with SPEC as Co-Chair of the Zero Waste Committee where he is developing a waste reduction education program.

Talk Title: Garbage: it's not what you think it is.

Waste is an illusion! A fiction we created to increase prosperity! What a marvellous thing! Imagine people holding up signs at a protest calling “Save the garbage!!!” The Whales would be proud.

Waste is indeed an elusive construct of the mind. A very useful social and economical tool. I invite you to explore how emerging science of mind and of addiction can interpret and inform what waste actually is.
