t who will be presenting at this year's workshop!





We are thrilled to announce the fantastic line up of speakers for this year's workshop. 




Workshop Keynote


The 2022 CURC Workshop Keynote will be GL Genco, CEO and Founder of Generation Conscious. G.L., grew up near a waste transfer station in Jamaica, Queens, NYC before moving to Long Island with his Trinidadian-Italian family. Seeing the health impacts of the waste station on his community motivated him to found Generation Conscious. Their mission is to create sustained change by radically rejecting the systems and structures perpetuating racial and economic injustice; carbon, plastic, water-waste and pollution—replacing these infrastructures and their consequences with systems and structures that generate true sustainability, equity and accessibility!


Don't miss out on hearing his inspiring story and mission to build a cleaner world, enabling a zero waste reality for all.
