Event description

Description

In this hands-on 2 hour workshop, Nat Hunter, co-founder of The Great Recovery, will start by outlining the need for us to move to a circular economy. We will then get our hands dirty, and using security toolkits, hammers and spudgers we will take discarded products apart to see what is in them. We will analyse the materials, map out supply chains, talk about what happens to these products when they are discarded in various parts of the world. We will then redesign some of the key products for a circular economy, using The Great Recovery design model. We will redesign each product for fix & repair, for service design, for re-use in manufacture and for material recovery. We will need to consider Internet of Things, sensors, tracking, robots and other technology that can help us achieve these new business models.
