Abstract

Australians are the second highest producers of solid waste per capita – waste which continues to increase annually. Although waste management technologies such as recycling, methane capture and landfill infrastructures are improving, national reliance on landfilling as a final destination for refuse materials remains prevalent. This research investigates how visualisation strategies can be deployed to establish a broader dialogue regarding the profound environmental impacts of waste generation. I identify how the visual display of information can activate social behaviour change, with the inclusion of audience participation.
