Our world is only 8.6% circular. That means that only 8.6% of global resources are being circulated back into our economies and communities. Or that 91.4% of our planet’s finite resources are currently being wasted.
But amongst the startling statistics about our increasingly challenging climate emergency, there are businesses and organisations driving change. Pioneering new innovations, embracing new technologies, supporting and developing the workforce of tomorrow. We need a circular economy. And the business community is leading the charge.
Welcome to Circular Glasgow’s Get Inspired 2021 event. This year’s virtual event is a chance to hear from some brilliant business leaders and entrepreneurs, build your knowledge of a circular economy and its importance in achieving ambitious net-zero targets, and find inspiration to make a difference in your own organisation. Across the morning, we will be exploring 3 key themes:
Join us as we showcase how businesses, both here in Scotland and around the world, are using technology and innovative solutions to solve some of the world’s biggest environmental problems and hear how organisations are working with our nation’s young people to build the skills and knowledge that will ensure our future workforce is ready for the circular economy jobs of tomorrow.
Get inspired. Be informed. Join Glasgow’s circular economy movement.
