WEBINAR: Circular Economy: Products. Spaces. Communities.

Roxane Spears and Tarkett’s senior design manager, Janette Murray, will discuss the transition from a take-make-waste economy toward a circular one, along with Bergen Hubert of Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute and Garr Punnett, Chief of Staff & Circular Economist for Rheaply. We will review the three principles of a circular economy: design out waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use, regenerate natural systems. We will also review case studies to show circular economy in business with positive outcomes that are focused on product design, architectural design and designing for a circular community.
