Women in Circular Economy Leadership Award 2019 Megan Bekesi
Megan Bekesi, Education and Promotions Manager, East Waste will examine the use of online media platforms and campaigns, including gamification in household waste education.
Megan Bekesi aims to determine the best online platforms for the delivery of household waste disposal information gathered through East Waste’s bin weighing technology. She will explore the technology in use by other councils nationally and how these are delivering the information to household.
“Having worked in waste education for eight years, I’m constantly looking for new and innovative ideas to improve the delivery of education and drive behaviour change,” says Ms Bekesi.
“My research into viral education campaigns that use fun, gamification and online technology to drive waste behaviour change, will provide great knowledge and ideas to take waste education to the next level.”
