Circular@Home Challenge + Conversation
Just what is the Circular Economy and what does it mean for the choices you make at home to support combating climate change?
As part of the Reading Climate Festival, a week-long programme of free events to inspire action on climate change, the Circular Economy Club Reading will be running a week long Circular@Home Challenge to help individuals and families, learn about, take action and share steps they can take on their journey to decreasing waste and looking at sustainable resource use, in our homes and out and about in our daily lives.
We’ll be sharing tips that shift from less take, use and discard of stuff and materials, to exploring our relationship with things, rethinking, reducing, reusing, renting, repairing and recycling!
From Monday to Friday we will have a different circular theme with some short and simple, to more longer term actions you can take to build more circularity into your life (and work). The week will culminate on Friday 13th November with an online session at 10am. A special Circular Coffee + Conversation where we will be joined by a Ehab Sayed, the Founder and Director of Innovation at Biohm. A true innovator in the Circular Economy!
He founded Biohm to develop nature-inspired construction systems and materials that champion a transformation towards the integration of biological processes in manufacturing, and create a biomimetic (nature-inspired) circular future that meets our environmental, economic and human needs.
Sign-up to get involved, receive a support guide for the week and join the conversation on Friday. We’ll also be harvesting the ideas and celebrating all the changes people have made through the week.
A chance to take Circular Action at Home and as a Community!
As for the charity, thanks for the offer. We would be keen to support, New Beginnings Reading. This charity is doing an amazing job locally to support homeless and alongside this, they also support so many other great initiatives for the community which we believe have a circular link (that have social and environmental impact, sharing space, food, uniforms, community care, reusing Reading Festival leftovers and also a place for the bike kitchen).
