Description

Closing the Loop film screening. A documentary about the closing economy.

“Unless we go to Circular it’s game over for the planet; it’s game over for society”.

These are the opening words of Closing the Loop, the world’s first feature-length documentary film on the circular economy. Going “circular” refers to the necessary change from our current take-make-waste linear economy to a borrow-use-return circular economy (sometimes also referred to as the zero-waste or cradle-to-cradle economy).

Join the screening of the amazing 'Closing the Loop'
When: Tuesday 17th December 2019 from 6:15pm to 8:30pm.
Where: Usha Kasera Lecture Theatre: Room 1.264, First floor, Old College, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH8 9YL

Cost: FREE but limited spaces.

The film is directed by A two-time Telly® Award and Emmy® Award winning filmmaker Graham Sheldon and presented by global sustainability expert, Prof. Dr Wayne Visser. And despite its dire warnings – John Elkington, famous for coining the “triple bottom line” of sustainability says in the film: “if we continue with the linear economy if we’re to use a technical term totally screwed” – it is an optimistic film about innovative solutions.

In support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (especially Goal 12 on Responsible Consumption and Production), the documentary explores five key strategies for achieving circularity – reduce, reuse, recycle, renew and reinvent – by showcasing examples from Europe, Latin America and Africa and featuring insights from experts from the likes of the World Economic Forum and the Universities of Cambridge and Harvard.

The film will be followed by a guided discussion.

This event is a partnership between Edinburgh and Lothians Regional Equality Council's Communities For Conservation project and Transition Edinburgh
