Get Inspired 2021
Tuesday 15th June 2021
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.

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 way.
Welcome to Circular Glasgow’s Get Inspired 2021 event. Across the morning, we will be exploring 3 key themes:
At Get Inspired 2021, as well as hearing from expert businesses and entrepreneurs, you can 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.
Get inspired. Be informed. Join Glasgow’s circular economy movement.
