RIBA Gloucestershire innovation series: Circular economy and Cradle 2 Cradle

RIBA Gloucestershire is delighted to present the latest event in its innovation series. Join us for a discussion on circular economy and Cradle 2 Cradle (C2C).

With climate change being an urgent challenge, it has never been more critical to step away from the "take-make-waste" model of consumption. Circular economy and Cradle 2 Cradle (C2C) offer a solution to this problem.

Cradle 2 Cradle is about viewing waste as an eternal resource and developing products and processes in the same way as a healthy ecological system where all resources are used effectively, and in a cyclical way (as opposed to the current linear system that can be better described as a cradle to grave system).

For this event, RIBA Gloucestershire have teamed up with Tarkett, to present a conversation with Rob Kragt, CSR Communication Manager and a European Cradle 2 Cradle ambassador since 2009.

Rob is an experienced and enthusiastic presenter, expert and trainer on the topics of Cradle 2 Cradle, circular economy and sustainable innovations in relation to health and wellbeing, as well as green building labels.

This presentation will cover:

  • an explanation of Cradle 2 Cradle and how it is the basis of circular economy
  • innovations and solutions as well as challenges
  • indoor air quality, and health and wellbeing in relation to Covid-19
  • how collaboration is key in realising these goals

We will be hosting this talk online through Microsoft Teams and look forward to welcoming you to the event.

A link to access the talk will be sent after registration.
