Live Debris operates under a mission of perpetual mutual education, dedicated to exchanging, exploring and developing new strategies for enhancing the value of materials and of the people who survive from waste recovery. Through international workshops, exhibitions, interventions, development, lectures, art and exchanges, Live Debris creates opportunities for people from all walks of life to broaden their understanding of waste management as a tool for social, economic and ecological development. With the belief that today's waste must be met with widespread reuse, localized recycling and integrated management systems that benefit those who need it most, Live Debris demonstrates how social inclusion and locally appropriate waste management are necessary and related aspects of peace and security around the world.
