At some point in the future, we will look back on the war on 'waste' and ask ourselves why on earth we didn't always value the circularity of our resources.

The conversation on the circular economy has moved beyond 'what is it?' and 'who is doing it?'. The next evolution of circularity begins now so join us as we kick start a new conversation about 'what is next?' and 'how can we all get involved?'.

What does the building and construction industry need to better engage with the circular economy? This workshop aims to look at strategy, models and funding to support industry better engage and benefit from the circular economy. 

Come along to this FREE event for property, construction and infrastructure professionals and suppliers to discover what the future holds for the circular economy and how we can get there!
