About this Event
Join the Circular Economy Club Reading (CEC Reading) following the CEC Circular Cities Week for our launch event. We will be hosted by the brand new Curious Lounge, a 2 min walk from the station and partnering with ReadingCAN to imagine and design together a Circular Reading.
What is the Reading Circular Economy Club?
We are part of the Circular Economy Club, a global network of over 3,500 circular economy professionals and organisations in over 100 countries changing the way our cities operates.
Our aim is to use Circular Economy Models, design and thinking as innovation drivers to reduce waste and rethink products, business and behaviours, creating new and wider value for our community.
We act as a platform to amplify local initiatives and create new opportunities, bringing businesses, government, individuals and academic together.
We want to be brave, innovative, thoughtful and impactful.
We aim to meet every other month for an interactive, hands-on and fun event where ideas are shared and actions agreed to “put” Reading on the map of Circular Economy.
