“Waste Commons” in Motion via Hong Kong’s Light Rail Loop
Exploring the Multiple Routes for Community-Oriented Food Waste Management
This project proposes to explore the emerging and diverse community-based practices for recycling food waste along the light rail loop in the Big Northwest area in order to develop a solution to the problem of food waste in Hong Kong. It introduces and develops the concept “waste commons”, the idea of a shared ownership or responsibility for waste. It aims to ultimately develop an integrated framework for sustainable waste management that harnesses social mobilisation in the form of a community economy for food waste, so as to develop a more sustainable relationship between humans and waste in a rural-urban nexus of Hong Kong.
