The 29th session of Bhutan Dialogue was held on 9th June 2020 with Mr. Karma Yonten as the guest speaker.
Karma Yonten is Bhutan’s first citizen to turn waste management and recycling into a business. His pioneering enterprise, Greener Way, is tackling the country’s growing waste problem head-on: it collects, separates and correctly disposes of domestic waste material; it manages 1,140 tonnes of recyclable matter; it has launched groundbreaking education initiatives; and it turns organic waste into high-grade compost. Karma, who was always determined to be self employed as well as serve his community, was becoming increasingly concerned about mismanaged waste and related issues such as unsightly landfills, leaching toxins and dangerous side-effects on people’s health
