[FREE Webinar] Isn't Circular Economy just Better Recycling?

Circular Economy is estimated to be worth

Є4.1 Trillion by 2030, with many economic regions
and regulators rapidly embracing it.

It is changing how economies work and

rewrites the rules of the game for business,
in a race to solve climate and sustainability issues.

But is it just about material cycling?

What is it meant to achieve?

Are we on the right track in implementation?

Why must business monetise from it?

Join us in this upcoming webinar for an insightful dialogue about unleashing true power of circular economy and why the current trend of diluting and distorting the term is increasingly concerning for those serious about solving the climate crisis and tapping into the next trillion dollar business.

How to benefit from CE_talk poster_sq.jpeg

PRIVATE - Food and Circular Economy Talk at Mid Sussex Voluntary Action,United Kingdom

Food connects us all. It is a big part of our daily lives, be it at home, buying a simple Mars bar for a youth club or offering tea and biscuits to a neighbour.  Food prices are rising, yet a lot of food is thrown away.

 

As volunteer action groups in the community, what can we do to eat our way out of climate change? 

Invitation by MSVA to discuss this topic with more than 15 of their volunteer groups  open the discussion for a Food Partnership.
