Influence the future of our Circular Economy Club

Following a successful launch of the Circular Economy Club Chamber Low Carbon in June 2019, planning is underway about the direction the club will now take, and we want to hear your views on what to do next.  This is your chance to be part of this growing sustainability movement and influence the future of our Circular Economy Club.

What a start

The Chamber Low Carbon programme launched our own Circular Economy Club (CEC) in a special event at Brockholes Nature Reserve near Preston, Lancashire in June 2019.  We joined forces with the Preston CEC to bring together professionals, businesses and organisations from Lancashire and further afield.  Following an introduction to the CEC from Chamber Low Carbon programme manager, Stephen Sykes, the audience watched a screening of Closing the Loop, the world’s first feature-length documentary on the circular economy.

The event finished with an engaging Q&A session where audience members asked an expert panel their opinion on how best to roll out the circular economy and achieve buy-in from businesses.

What next?

The next step for our CEC is to decide what direction it takes.  This is not a decision to be made by the Low Carbon team alone; we’re looking for your input on what you would like to see happen.  We’re forming a steering group made up of those who want to engage with businesses in creating a more sustainable future.  We welcome your opinion on what events, activities and initiatives to work on so we can try and make a real change.

To express your interest you can call 01254 356482 or email

You can also join a LinkedIn group for the CEC with over 60 members already in conversation.  You can join here.

Next event

The week of 28th October – 2nd November 2019 is the CEC “Circular Cities Week” and we’ll be getting involved with our next event.  The exact details will be something agreed with our steering group so make you sure you let us know what you would like to see.
