Excerpt from Eventbrite


“This is a free event open to anyone in the Tees Valley with an interest in sustainability whether that’s from a personal or professional point. Undeniably we are facing global, interconnected challenges: a fragile planet, people under pressure and finite resources…..

…..But circular and regenerative approaches offer ways to respond to these challenges, AND to create healthy, resilient, profitable businesses in a thriving society.

But not all circular solutions are better – we unpick some ‘false solutions’ and help you get a better understanding of how to make the circular economy work for people, planet and prosperity.
