The Event

The 5th ZERI World Congress took place in Colombia’s Coffee Region in 1999. It included the participation of 350 international scientists. The 3 last days of the congress took place in the bamboo pavilion, located in the “Recinto del Pensamiento”- “Mindfulness Place” in Manizales, along with the First International ZERI Congress for the Youth. This was an unprecedented event in the history of our country, as youth and scientists came together to propose a productive circular model, based in lessons thought by nature, where the concept of waste does not exist. In nature, what any given organism discards is a vital element for other organisms. This is ZERI’s most important concept: zero waste, as everything is useful and valuable.

The ZERI Foundation has the privilege to invite you to the 2019 WORLD ZERI CONGRESS: “Environmental Innovation and Science for Employment” The congress will take place in Manizales, from October 22nd to October 25th, 2019. Our goal is to bring together again young students, scientists, international experts and active members of the ZERI Foundation, to discuss topics of interest to the region such as: eco-design, entrepreneurship, education, residual water treatment, solid waste management, amongst others. This is an opportunity for young students to share with the experts.

To learn about the different approaches to sustainable development and territorial improvement through internatonal leaders and experts, active members of the ZERI community, who will visit the city.​

To envision the city in the bussiness and international community, through a showcase of local projects and initiatives.​

To commemorate the 20 years of the ZERI Pavilion's construction through world wide reflection on environmental change and implementation of local changes.​
