Launch of the Circular Economy Dinner Club 04.05.17
The launch of the Circular Economy Dinner Club, by David Greenfield from SOENECS and Linda O'Halloran from Thinking Development Consulting, was held at the Goldfinger Factory in Goldbourne Road, Notting Hill last night.
Twenty five people from organisations as diverse as Futerra, Lloyds Bank, London Waste Recycling Board, Chatham House, UCL, Urban Farming, Folklabs, CupClub, Cogen and The Princes Trust attended.
The venue was the Goldfinger Factory, which is an award-winning design, build and teaching platform centred around upcycling that creates bespoke furniture and interiors, whilst helping artisans and artisans- in- the- making become self-sustaining through craft and in turn saving materials from landfill.
The food was locally sourced, organic and fresh and cooked by Panella with the wine being organic and in some case sulphate free. The Ale was made from waste bread.
The evening centred on different circular economy topics, including fashion, food, big data, construction and behaviour change. Many discussions were had on how the Circular Economy could be embedded in the diverse group of individuals and organisations.
The intention is to run this evening regularly, if you would like to know more please email firstname.lastname@example.org
