The circular economy: a climate change solution?

This talk is part of the Cambridge Science Festival.

With 97% of climate scientists in firm agreement that we are facing a climate change crisis, there is a need for new solutions that help us reduce carbon emissions rapidly. The linear economy, characterised by our “buy it – use it – trash it” approach to goods is unsustainable. The circular economy is one potential carbon reduction and waste prevention solution gaining momentum and Cambridge is at the vanguard of this change through Circular Cambridge, a festival that celebrates progressive ways to design, manufacture, access, repair and reuse the things that we want and need in our lives.

This interactive workshop will explore the positives and negatives of the linear and circular economies, looking at how the circular economy might apply to our own lives and communities, and how it might help us overcome difficulties in addressing the climate change challenge.
