London and the Circular Economy: the role of Higher Education (workshop 2)
This is the second in a series of workshops designed to bring London’s higher education sector together to leverage the capacity of the sector in supporting London’s transition to a circular city. Supported by both the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and the London Waste and Recycling Board, this workshop will invite discussion on a variety of ways in which the sector can work towards this goal.
The focus of this online workshop will be to engage in a lively discussion on proposed projects which could include activities such as:
- zero waste campus
- circular canteens
- mapping London’s circular economy activity – how to leverage the research capabilities of students
- joint procurement activities to support a more circular supply chain
- including more circular economy in curricula, understanding the interdisciplinary nature of circular economy
Participants will also be able to hear circular economy updates from a few attending Universities. As we are covering a range of discussion topics, we would ideally have representatives from academia, sustainability / campus management and a lead student from each attending organisation.
Registered participants will be sent the Zoom invite link by 2 June 2020.
Date: 3 June 2020
Time: 14:00 – 16:00 (BST)
