The London & Southern Counties Centre Council New Member Network is pleased to invite you to attend an open meeting to discuss how the Circular Economy can be applied to the built environment and business.
The current and projected use of resources and materials continues to have negative consequences across the globe. In order to solve this problem, a fundamental shift in how we use resources is required.
The Circular Economy is a systems approach which does away with the traditional linear model of ‘take-make-and dispose’ economy and instead proposes a system where resources are managed in a circular fashion; so that material use is decoupled from economic growth, and materials are used intelligently.
With the EU's Circular Economy Package and the UK’s Waste & Resources Strategy Circular Economy thinking is high on the agenda. But how does it practically fit into the built environment and business, and what can we learn from companies applying these principles? In this event we will explore these topics further and hear more from businesses driving the Circular Economy agenda.
Location: London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB) 69 Wilson St, London EC2A 2BB
Time: 15:00 to 17:00 pm. Please arrive at 15:00 pm for registration and a short tour of LWARB’s Circular designed offices. Presentations will start promptly once the tours have concluded. We would be delighted if you could join us after the event for further networking opportunities at a location nearby to be confirmed.
An agenda will be issued closer to the event. Speakers include:
• Andrea Crump, Circular Economy Policy & Projects Officer, Circular London and LWARB
• Brittany Harris, Co-Founder, QFlow
• Oksana Bondar, Business Innovation Manager, Biohm
• Harper Robertson, Sustainable Buildings Consultant, AECOM
• Stine Wilhemson, Creative Partner, Hubbub
Event is open to all CIWM and NMN (graduate) members. We strongly advise you to book early to avoid disappointment. If you have any questions please contact the lead New Member Network Coordinator Jacqueline Fitzgerald (Jacqueline.email@example.com).
