The Zero Waste study Tour in Kerala and Tamil Nadu India was organized to provide a venue for GAIA members who attended the IPEN General Assembly the opportunity to visit different waste management sites organized by GAIA members in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. There were 10 participants from nine countries: eight participated in the 4-day study tour August 16 to August 20, 2008 in Kerala and Tamil Nadu, then the two participated during the Kerala leg.

GAIA recognized this as an opportunity to deepen the members’ awareness and experience on how Zero Waste initiatives in a highly populated country like India are implemented. Discussions among the participants helped draw ideas on how such projects can be developed and improved in their respective countries/areas.
