Dr Jutta Gutberlet (University of Victoria, Canada)
With the videos“CATADORAS and CATADORES” and “BEYOND GRAMACHO” we present the very successful work of Dr Jutta Gutberlet from San Paolo, Brazil, where she significantly contributed to the improvement of the socio-economic situation of the informal sector and to the increase of the recovery and utilization of materials from waste. In cooperation with colleagues and the public administration she has made a great impact on the working and living conditions of the Informal Sector. Her work is centred on empowering people through intensive education programmes and on supporting the building of organizational structures, such as the waste pickers cooperatives.
We believe that the ideas behind these projects could be usefully implemented and developed in other parts of the world, especially in other developing countries with similar socio-economic conditions and waste management profiles.
