This three-hour Workshop will bring together delegates and experts from around the Country via live webconferencing technology, reducing travel time/cost and increasing interactivity. Local hosts will facilitate at each of the six venues, and refreshments will be provided. The event will include:

  • Presentations by Guest Speakers based at the Birmingham and Cardiff workshops, broadcast live to all other venues
  • Local discussions facilitated by Workshop Hosts, who will share the results with delegates around the country via videolink
  • Presentation and video materials will be made available online after the event


 Workshop discussions will seek to answer the following questions:

  • Ecodesign – anything to do with the future well-being of your business?
  • What is Ecodesign/life cycle thinking?
  • What are the benefits?
  • Who should be involved?
  • How do you/your company make it happen?
  • How do you communicate what you are doing?
  • What is the role of policy and education?
