垃圾是人们生产和生活消费的必然产物。近年来,中国城市和农村人们生活水平的提高对垃圾处理容量带来了巨大的挑战。垃圾处理系统就好比是家庭的卫生间,直接决定着我们的健康、卫生和生活质量。 从垃圾处理水平最高的国家和地区的经验来看,无论使用多么先进的技术来焚烧、填埋或者堆肥,源头的垃圾减量和有效回收才是处理垃圾问题的关键。我们的嘉宾陈立雯是一名一线的环保工作者,她从国外留学归来之后扎根在中国农村,帮助村民建立起了垃圾分类的生态管理系统。今天的节目中她会为大家分享她在南峪村实施垃圾分类项目的故事、感悟以及她对中国垃圾问题的洞见。如果您有兴趣进一步了解立雯的实地项目,您可以关注“东西异同”微信公众号。以下链接是CCTV新闻周刊对立雯项目的报道http://tv.cctv.com/2017/09/09/VIDEmAgmEInNAzkwABSZ3uzW170909.shtml

Waste is an inevitable result of human consumption. In recent years, both municipal and rural waste management are challenged by the sheer volume of waste that is still rapidly growing. The waste disposal system directly affects the hygiene, health, and well-being of our lives. Based on international experiences, no matter how advanced the incineration, landfill, or composting technologies would be, it is crucial to manage the waste generation and recycling. Our guest today is CHEN Liwen, an environmental practitioner from China. After studying abroad, she returned to China and started her waste management project in Chinese villages, where she helped to build the sustainable waste management systems. In today’s podcast, Liwen will share her stories and insights based on her experience from the Nanyu village, Hebei Province of China. If you are interested in Liwen’s projects, please subscribe to her Wechat channel “东西异同” (in Chinese). Here is another report on Liwen’s project by CCTV (in Chinese). http://tv.cctv.com/2017/09/09/VIDEmAgmEInNAzkwABSZ3uzW170909.shtml
