Thriving in the ‘age of acceleration’: keeping pace with technological, environmental, and political change

The global forces impacting our planet are changing at an exponential rate, posing many new and complex challenges to humanity.

The human population has almost tripled since the 1950s, spurred on by rapid technological advancements which, in turn, have accelerated climate change and globalisation – alongside the societal, environmental, and economic impacts of these phenomena.

In recent years, the UK has also seen widespread political change, with industries and organisations having to respond to challenges and opportunities posed by new policies, regulations, targets, and international trade agreements that will shape our sector for decades to come.

These changes are having, and will continue to have, a huge impact on the way we all live and work, placing new pressures on governments, organisations, and economies around the world. But they also provide immense opportunities.

This year’s Resourcing the Future Conference will explore the topic of change and ask what accelerating technological, environmental, and political evolution means for our industries, both now and over the next thirty years.

Hear from policy makers, business leaders, industry experts and pioneers as they discuss the opportunities inherent in change and share case studies of positive responses to policy, technological and societal change from a range of organisations, both within and outside of circular economy industries.  

Packed with thought-provoking keynotes, lively panel debates, and informal networking opportunities, the Resourcing the Future Conference is a must for your Autumn diary.
