Circular Economy in Organic Vegetable Growing
Learn how Scilly Organics has embraced the circular economy approach to business. This small vegetable farm in the UK has successfully reduced its environmental and social impacts, reduced waste, engaged with its customers and created new products.
As part of CIRC4Life, over three years we have been researching, testing and implementing circular economy solutions for businesses. We believe the approaches we have uncovered will be applicable for many other businesses, particularly those in farming and growing
Join us on May 12th (10am to 12pm BST) to learn more about the project, circular economy, and how it might be applied to businesses.

Our partner CEPS will be organising 2 webinars :
“Incentivising new circular economy business models” - 14th of Oct 2020 / 11:00 - 12:30 (CET)
Drawing amongst others on the results of CIRC4Life, which implements circular economy business models in different value chains, this event aims to present examples of circular business models, discuss barriers and enablers, and importantly the role the new Circular Economy Action Plan can play in accelerating towards a circular transition.
“How to encourage consumer engagement in the circular economy?” - 20th Oct 2020 / 11:00 - 12:15 (CET)
Consumer buy-in is key to unlocking the potential of circular approaches, so how can we encourage consumers to engage in the circular economy?

Seminar: The Role of Families in achieving the Circular Economy
25 April 2019, 15:01:06
Make Mothers Matter is organising in partnership with the European Economic and Social Committee on the eve of the International Day of Families a seminar on “the Role of Families in achieving the Circular Economy".
It will take place during the annual edition of the #EUgreenweek.
As the Behavioural Study on Consumers' Engagement in the Circular Economy recently published by the European Commission 2018 points out, consumer participation on the Circular Economy has received little attention until now. Thus to move towards a Circular Economy, the consumption/ demand side needs to be well understood and studied. Consumers play a pivotal role in transitioning to a circular economy.
At this conference we want to explore how families can be better integrated and considered on the circular economy. We will bring together different experts and stakeholders at various levels of action, from policy-makers to community-led initiatives combining a top down and bottom up approach. The aim is to exchange and build a constructive dialogue among different actors of sustainable development in Europe.
We will analyse how our society can achieve economic progress by including measures of social inclusion, equal opportunities and justice, and how families can be supported in order to contribute in the transition to a more circular economy.
This event is an occasion for MMM to present how we are engaging families in the circular economy at the Horizon 2020 research project CIRC4Life.
