About this Event

For this Climate Cafe our speaker Peter Desmond from Growth International will be speaking about the circular economy. Our current linear economy is based on the traditional industrial model of “Take, Make, Waste”. A circular economy decouples growth from the consumption of scare resources so that products and materials stay in productive use for as long as possible. This means creating a system in which waste is designed out entirely; new business models are created which are regenerative and restorative to nature as well as benefiting society. A circular economy will contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals particularly Goal 13 – Climate Action through improving energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions. Peter’s talk will provide case studies of how the circular economy operates in practice.

These Climate Cafes run 2-3.30pm on the first Saturday of every month, where we focus on a topical feature event on Zoom with a speaker followed by a question and answer session/discussions. They will revert to physical events as soon as possible.

In addition to the once a month Horsham Climate Cafe Sussex Green Living hosts the Horsham Future Forum and the Youth Eco Forum online using Zoom, learn more here https://www.sussexgreenliving.co.uk/cafes-forums/.
