Background

This Circular Economy Club (CEC) event will expand your knowledge around circular initiatives taking place in Yorkshire. It is also an opportunity to socialise with other circular economy professionals and brainstorm future projects. Mapping Week Sessions are happening all over the world in February; you can see an introductory video here.

During the session, you will work in teams to identify circular initiatives are happening in Yorkshire, across different sectors and types of organisations. At the end of the collaborative session, you will get a clear idea of the state of the circular economy in Yorkshire. You will also be able to feed in views as to what circular initiatives could be initiated in the region in the future.

After the event, you will have the chance to learn about what other peers are doing worldwide, as CEC will share the outcomes of all sessions happening globally, online for free. The list of stakeholders and mapped initiatives from around the world will be publicly available on CEC’s website for participants and the general public.
