On the 15th August, the Glasgow School of Art's Innovation School will be hosting a circular economy symposium at the GSA highland campus in Forres. The symposium will bring together local individuals, projects and businesses, all from the Moray and Highland region and all operating within the circular economy. The day will feature a number of talks and demonstrations from guests, learning experiences, networking, and a guest talk via Skype from one of their partners, the Monte Verde Institute in Costa Rica.
It will be a great opportunity to see how industry, large and small, is responding to the need for change to a more sustainable economy, and learn how the Moray and Highland region are taking practical steps to use land more sustainably and develop more sustainable products and services.
There will also, of course, be a great opportunity to speak directly to our guests over lunch and continue to network over a tipple at the end of the day. With a low carbon BBQ cooked from sustainable local sources.
