Why host a screening
Do you want to educate you local community in how circular economy works in practice? You can now host a CEC Global Screening of "Closing the Loop" and bring real-life examples to circular economy enthusiasts. We encourage you to shape your own discussion on this topic and simultaneously with other global hosts bring focus on the importance of circular economy models.
"By screening Closing the Loop, you are contributing to the rising tide of education and action on the circular economy. After 30 years of working in sustainability, I am convinced that transformative change happens through social movements when momentum steadily builds until it reaches a tipping point. We welcome all who want to be part of this revolution in the making, by helping us to go beyond awareness of the problems and to showcase solutions from around the world." Prof. Dr. Wayne Visser, Presenter and Co-producer, Closing the Loop
