The BLUEPRINT Circular Economy Roadshow is a virtual event taking place 09 – 13 May offering people the chance to see how they can benefit from this new way of using waste as a resource. Free of charge, this exciting, week-long event will focus exclusively on the circular economy.
The circular economy is about transitioning from the current ‘take, make, dispose’ systems to those where there is no waste, and resources can be returned to the biosphere to be used again.
A circular economy has many benefits, including encouraging efficient resource use, creating ample job opportunities, and meeting global climate targets by reducing emissions.
Open to all to attend from the comfort of their own home or office, attendees will hear from innovative speakers from areas including policy, fashion, construction and more. From discovering how others are implementing circular practices to learning what skills you need to succeed in the circular industry, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the benefits of a circular economy and be equipped with knowledge to support this green transition.
A host of inspiring speakers from leading organisations including the Chartered Institute of Waste Management (CIWM), Elvis & Kresse, Hubbub, ReLondon and TRAID are supporting the Roadshow. They will share their expertise on how they integrate the circular economy into their work and lead the way in circular economy development.
The BLUEPRINT Circular Economy Roadshow has been organised by the BLUEPRINT to a Circular Economy Project. The project has a total budget of 5.6m euros, 3.8m of which were provided by the European Regional Development Fund via the Interreg France (Channel) England programme.
Kent County Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Susan Carey, said: “The circular economy and the move to Zero Waste are creating opportunities for growth. This virtual roadshow is an opportunity for the people of Kent to learn more about how they can benefit the environment, reduce costs and become more sustainable.”
