DUE TO OUTBREAK OF THE CORONA-VIRUS WE HAVE TAKEN THE DECISION TO POSTPONE THE ‘THERE AND BACK AGAIN’ EVENT.

There And Back Again: circular economies is the third edition of this symposium hosted by Centre for Circular Design. The day has been created to engage the research community at UAL and beyond around the theme of designing for circular economies. The day will take the form of inspirational and thought provoking talks and workshops and will finish with networking drinks. Come and hear from the researchers and invited guest speakers investigating the circular model itself in the context of the global environmental crisis.

The concept of a circular economy has been criticised for catering to the current capitalist and consumerist status quo. With a planetary crisis on our hands, how can we reconcile the idea of circular design with the social climate justice agenda? This will be discussed through the different viewpoints of the many ‘circular economies’ and how they might work together to provide the tools for effective transitions to more sustainable futures. This event explores how perspectives across design, academia, industry and education converge with circularity.
