Following from our last Circular Economy event in April, this online session will utilise case studies in the south west to explore how to effectively embed circular economy principles into design, construction and operational processes with the aim of illustrating the benefits and the role the circular economy plays in tackling the climate emergency.

Case studies will focus on real projects being progressed in the region in the following areas:

  • Material reuse and second-hand material markets
  • Designing for flexibility
  • Social benefits of a circular economy
