CLOSING THE LOOP’ – the world’s first feature-length documentary film about the circular economy

‘CLOSING THE LOOP’ – the world’s first feature-length documentary film about the circular economy.

INCLUDING: Discussion with an expert panel following the screening

Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority, the University of Liverpool and the Liverpool Guild of Students in partnership with the Circular Economy Club Liverpool City Region are hosting a screening of ‘CLOSING THE LOOP’, the world’s first feature-length documentary film about the circular economy.

The documentary provides a range of examples and insights for our global society and the environment including what we make, buy, consume, throw away, recycle and reuse. Its’ stark comments about the current global and resource intensive economy are a timely reminder that many of these resources are finite.

The themes include the impact of economies that are predominantly still linear, how unsustainable these are on both resources and people, and looks at progressive projects that demonstrate innovative resource management.

The film also advocates how an economy can be moved to a more circular approach through meaningful change, and advocates designing out waste in the first place.

By keeping resources at their highest value for longer, the film will provoke solutions to the problems we, and the generations ahead will face imminently and in the future.

Following the screening, you will be able to put questions to our panellists and have the opportunity to join the Circular Economy Club Liverpool City Region.

Panellists,

Carl Beer CEO, Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority

Stephen Sykes, Director, The 2030 Hub

Maggie Mullan, Principal at Maggie Mullan Architects Ltd
