Event description
Beyond Zero Waste - Building a Truly Circular Economy for Wales

About this Event

Explore new circular income generation models from around the world and take part in a consultation on Wales' new mutual currency - the Celyn.

Organised by Circular Economy Wales CIC, in collaboration with Welsh Government, WLGA, CIWM, REUSE and One Voice Wales, this conference brings together politicians, practitioners, local authorities, social enterprises, businesses and international experts, to share ideas in Wales' collective journey towards a fully circular economy.

Day 2 will focus on Wales' new mutual credit system - the Celyn - which could help boost Welsh economy by an estimated £250m over the next decade.

Global exemplars will share practical steps on how to benefit from the circular, regenerative economy and what that means for all stakeholders.

Speakers over the two days include:

  • Hannah Blythyn AM, Deputy Minister for Housing and Local Government
  • Lee Waters AM, Deputy Minister for Economy and Transport
  • Sophie Howe, Future Generations Commissioner
  • Craig Anderson, Reuse Network
  • Dr Jane Davidson, Pro Vice-Chancellor for External Engagement and Sustainability at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David
  • Dr Paolo Dini LSE, Sardex Mutual Credit/Complementary Currency
  • Gerry Gillespie, City to Soil Australia Zero Waste Australia
  • Akira Sakano, Zero Waste Academy Japan
  • Iain Gulland, Zero Waste Scotland
  • Zero Waste Europe
  • Zero Waste Youth International

Workshops on different themes throughout both days are recognised as certified professional training modules to contribute to the Career Development Scheme operating within CIWM and endorsed by WAMITAB.

Alongside the main conference we will run a two-day youth conference with Zero Waste Schools Wales.

PLEASE NOTE THAT EARLY BIRD PRICING IS ONLY FOR TICKETS BOOKED BY 9TH OCTOBER 2019.
