We live in a Take-Make-Throwaway society. As our resources dwindle we need to rethink the way we manufacture things. The Circular Economy aims to build a society which uses natural and social capital sustainably using insights from science and nature. Caroline Walker, of TTB will present the ideas and lead a discussion on this innovative approach
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation works to accelerate the transition to a circular economy and the presentation uses illustrations from their educational materials. They summarise the idea in this way: “The circular economy refers to an industrial economy that is restorative by intention; aims to rely on renewable energy; minimises, tracks and eliminates the use of toxic chemicals; and eradicates waste through careful design.” See the website www.ellenmacarthurfoundation.org for
Join us for an evening of exploring these new ideas.
There is a short introductionary video on this link and lots of stuff on the Ellen MacArthur Foundation website.
