Join us for an afternoon hands on tear-down workshop run by The Great Recovery, followed by a seminar on the circular economy.
1pm - 4pm: Afternoon Workshop
This is the Great Recovery's trademark workshop; a hands on activity that will engage people with the challenges and opportunities of the circular economy in practice through the design methodology tool of teardown. Taking everyday products we will guide participants through the deconstruction process, mapping out material sources and supply chains as we go.
4.30pm - 7.45pm: Evening Seminar with keynote by Prof. Dr. Michael Braungart nad Sophis Thomas, RSA.
For decades, Prof. Dr. Michael Braungart has pioneered the Cradle to Cradle design concept. He co-authored (with William McDonough) the bestselling book of the same name, and has lectured at universities in Europe, America and Asia.
The Great Recovery is run by the RSA and supported by Innovate UK. They work with designers to policy makers, waste managers to academics to investigate the challenges of waste and the opportunities of a circular economy through the lens of design. Sophie will discuss the findings of this research and their collaboration with Fab Lab London.
More information on all of this can be found on the Nottingham Trent University website, here.
