Description

This event is a part of the Festival of Debate: www.festivalofdebate.com

Due to decades of over-borrowing from our planet’s natural assets, an environmental collapse is imminent. Everything from clothes to packaging follows a life of ‘take-use-dispose’. By adopting a circular economy, we can reduce the amount of waste we produce. Can this be achieved? Who is responsible? What can be done?

Speakers:
Prof. Tony Ryan OBE (Chair, The University of Sheffield)
Prof. Lenny Koh (The University of Sheffield)
Kevin Vyse (On Pack Recycling Label)
Mary Creagh (MP for Wakefield)
Maya De Souza (DEFRA)
