Metamorphosis: When Waste Becomes a Resource | 8th December 2016

Metamorphosis: When Waste Becomes a Resource | 8th December 2016

We would like to welcome all our members and guests to our upcoming panel discussion on food waste, technology and sustainability!

The event will be an opportunity to find out more about community-oriented technology and social enterprises in the context of sustainability. Our panel will address how these services, products and platforms are currently providing innovative solutions to address food waste, a global challenge that has been included in the Sustainable Development Goals by the United Nations.

The evening will include:
>> A panel discussion with Michael Barsties, from the food-sharing app OLIO, and Rebecca Dove, from the social enterprise Hubbub Enterprises;
>> An open Q&A session with the panellists and the audience, where you will have the opportunity to ask any questions or discuss any particular points that may intrigue you;
>> The screening of the first part of ‘Waste Land’: an award-winning documentary showing the transformative force of art, through the work of Brazilian artist Vik Muniz in the world’s largest landfill in Rio de Janeiro.

The first two parts of the event will be an opportunity to better understand how technology can develop solutions for the abundant food waste and provide alternatives for resource management. It will also include thoughts on how to better prepare communities to interact with these systems, improve our consumption patterns and directly participate in this emerging circular economy. Finally, the panellists will address the role of creativity and purpose in delivering more socially-aware businesses that ultimately make the industry more sustainable and efficient.

As always, bring any friends who may be interested in these particular topics and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.

We hope to see many of you there!
