The Circular Cambridge Festival is shaping up to be an extraordinary event!
The Festival seeks to keep the conversation going about climate change by reconsidering our throwaway culture and changing our relationship with stuff. 40% of global climate emissions arise from the items we consume. We passionately believe that we need to move from a linear take – use – dispose model to a circular one. A model in which the value of everything is maximised, where the goods of today become the resources of tomorrow, and where we understand that when it comes to throwing away, there is no ‘away’. In this new model, we would access many of the things we want by renting, sharing and exchanging rather than owning.
Come to the Festival and experience the circular economy for yourself. Hear from one of the UK’s leading environmentalists, enjoy a climate themed piano suite, get your broken gadget fixed at a Repair Cafe, enjoy a free film festival, try a tandem or electric bike, enjoy a story from the Cambridge Bard, swap some clothes at a swish, meditate, contribute to an art piece and get circular updates from our city’s big institutions like Addenbrokes and the University. In addition there will be stalls, a speakers corner, bike-powered short films and a chance to see again the powerful Whole Earth display that was on Parker’s Piece last year.
