This full-day event led by Circular London will bring together a wide range of organisations excited by the prospect of creative collaboration for a more circular city. Join us as we host conversations with panels of experts and showcase some of the brightest and best circular businesses in the capital. Come prepared to roll up your sleeves, get stuck in and make connections. The day is all about what we can achieve together.
** we are excited to announce that Kate Raworth, author of Doughnut Economics, will be speaking **
The event marks the official launch of Circular Economy Week, back for a second year, 10th – 14th June. Known for its creativity and innovation, London is home to some of the most exciting developments in the emerging ‘circular economy’. The capital is becoming a hotbed of opportunity for entrepreneurs and established businesses creating value through better management of resources and new approaches to product design, manufacturing and services.
The London Waste and Recycling Board’s Circular London programme is leading the way in accelerating a circular economy approach. We are building a strong community of businesses and organisations working together to deliver a more resilient, resource-efficient economy. Join us at this launch event on 10th June and at venues across the city during the rest of the week to find out more about how your business could benefit from circular design thinking and collaboration opportunities in London.
