The Society welcomed the Cresting team to the Society on 15 December for the Circular Economy: Sustainability implications of a social transformation conference.
Taking part online and in person from across Europe, over 30 speakers and panellists shared and discussed research findings from the Cresting research project, and explored the implications of the circular economy concept – a system in which the utilisation of resources is maximised and waste minimised.
Coordinated by geographer Pauline Deutz (University of Hull), the Cresting project brings together geographers and other researchers to explore the connected processes necessary for a circular economy. The project has collaborated with universities, governments and business around the world, and has produced a series of policy features and publications on circular economies.
