The Circular Economy is a framework for an economy that is restorative and regenerative by design. Many organisations are recognising that they need to adopt the transition towards a circular economy.
The STBAH are hosting a series of linked events exploring approaches to creating a sustainable economy. These events will aim to stimulate a regional conversation about how we can achieve the 3 principles of a sustainable economy bringing the voices of academics, funders, innovators, SMEs and corporates to the debate.
The first event will be a topic of #1 Designing out Waste and Pollution
If you are an SME or start-up interested in design that enables product reuse and recycling; new materials, designed-to-last products or consideration of by-products and waste then this event is for you!
You may have a product or service in one of these areas or may simply be curious about how you get your business ‘in shape’ to contribute to a sustainable economy?
There will be keynote talks, followed by flash presentations from SMEs innovating in new design, and then a panel discussion, rounded off with the opportunity to network and also to sign up to receive fully funded support for your business through the STBAH programme.
