OVERVIEW View Conference Agenda
The purpose of this half day conference is to provide a clear understanding of the potential scope of the circular economy, the strategy in place to support its development and the practical growth opportunities it provides for public and private sectors.
The central theme therefore is “How products are designed, supplied, used and passed on and treated at end of life” – taken from the Scottish Government's ‘Making things last strategy’. Speakers will focus on the enormous cost savings for Scotland that successful adoption of circular economy theory and practice can bring, as well as the export and growth potential for Scotland in the development of new products, skills and processes applicable to the global economy.
The first session will consider the strategic framework in which the circular economy is evolving, the policy, funding and market opportunities supporting and driving change and where Scotland stands in relation to the global opportunity to lead this market place.
The second session will look at four exemplar areas in which Scottish circular economy developments are building pathways to growth opportunities. Each will discuss the applicability of their own development experience across all sectors.
