About this Event

About this Event

Science shows that there is now an ecological crisis as well as a climate catastrophe looming. Nature is fundamental for all life, providing many free services for business. Now, business needs to act to halt its collapse, and to secure the future of business itself.

Circular Brighton & Hove collaborating with University of Sussex to screen a stunning film inspired by the Our Planet Netflix series - Our Planet: Our Business to raise awareness of the potential collapse of nature and how the Circular Economy can help provide solutions.

Shot using state of the art technology, accompanied by a fantastic soundtrack and featuring interviews with leading scientists, world leaders and natural historian Sir David Attenborough, it captures our world as never seen before. It also sets out how we can avert the collapse of nature.
