You’re invited to a discussion on how the co-operative business model can support the circular economy, which aims to shift our wasteful ‘linear’ economy based on ‘take, make, use and dispose’, to keeping material resources in use or ‘circulating’ for as long as possible through design, making, reuse, repair and recycling.
Unpack this topic further with the current Thinker in Residence, co-operatives expert Dr Guy Turnbull, who will cover:
- What is a co-operative business model?
- How a co-operatives model can help support the development of a circular economy throughout South Australia
- How circular economy businesses can benefit from becoming co-operatives
- If you’re working in the environment, sustainability, private or public sectors with a focus on the circular economy in any form, we encourage you to attend this event.
