The event

Ever wondered how many components there are in the products that you make or your suppliers use?  Bring along an example (either your own or products from home**) for the ‘tear down’ session, run by Mark Shayler and his colleagues from The Great Recovery. This workshop will introduce the issue of sustainable resource management  – the circular economy –  and the business benefits of changing your product and business model.  Participants will be guided through the deconstruction process, mapping out material sources and supply chains and will then look at the options for redesign and will start to consider prototyping new products or services that fit within a circular system. **. Ensure they are not needed anymore as we cannot guarantee to be able to put them back together! This workshop is particularly aimed at those in the following sectors – but anyone is welcome:

  • Automotive / Engines
  • Ceramics / Pottery
  • Infrastructure
  • Tourism / Food
  • Renewables / Energy

The cost is just £25 per person.
