EVENT: Circular Economy Birmingham debate
October 4, 2018
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
GVA, 3 Brindley Place Birmingham B1 2JB
Can ‘circular’ principles be integrated into the mainstream construction and property sector? Can the concept be a catalyst for the radical action needed to tackle the global waste and resources emergency?
Over reliance and excessive disposal, of resources has brought the concept of the Circular Economy hurtling into the limelight. More client organisations are specifying circular outcomes in contracts and we are seeing an increase in guidance and reports to support a movement towards a Circular Economy.
As part of the UKGBC’s Circular Economy programme we will be running a series of activities to raise awareness and increase understanding within the built environment industry around Circular Economy, to support our wider programme of driving practical outcomes on projects.
Join us for a lively debate on the hot topic of circular economy and the built environment. Registration with refreshments starts at 17.00. The debate starts at 17.30 promptly and will last approximately an hour followed by a networking reception where attendees are welcome to continue the discussion over drinks.
The debate will be chaired by Anna Surgenor, the lead on UKGBC’s Circular Economy Programme, speakers include Lydia Dutton, Circular Economy Club Coordinator – Birmingham & The Midlands.
This is free to attend and open to UKGBC members and invited guests only.
