Event description
Bristol ReUse monthly meetup - Explore the transformative power of re-use: From Philiosophy to Action.

About this Event

Reuse [noun] def. : A movement championing the use of existing material, extending the lifecycle of products, as a means to build a more sustainable society. An ideology which looks to repair, upcycle , share or buying second-hand material products instead of purchasing new as a means of overcoming consumerism and unsustainable development.
Circular Economy [noun] def. : An Economy which looks beyond the current take-make-waste model whilst refocusing growth on social benefits instead of capital. A system which decouples economic activity from the consumption of finite resources, designing out “waste”.

Bristol ReUse invites you to join us for the first of a new series of events in 2020, to explore the transformative power of re-use. In these often troubling times, we want to bring people together to explore the possibilities and solutions we can find in re-use principles for Bristol and beyond. How can we bring about real changes to our lives, and those in our community, through re-use and the circular economy?

The evening will be structured as an open discussion, preceded by an introduction on the philosophical foundations of re-use, sustainable change and the value of personal actions led by these principles. We will ponder on where the movement stands at the beginning of the new decade, before opening up the floor for group discussion;How can these ways of thinking help us to approach practical problems and issues within our city, today?

The second half of the evening will be a workshop in smaller groups, where we will look to apply Re-use and Circular Economy principles to real-world scenarios in Bristol. If you have an idea for a project, or a problem which needs solving then please do bring it along!

There will be time for a few drinks and the opportunity to catch up with and meet new people who are interested in sustainable solutions for Bristol after the workshop.

This is a free event run by Bristol ReUse, a volunteer run network. This is an opportunity to meet in an informal setting, make connections, share ideas and learn about innovative projects and initiatives in Bristol. We hope to see you there

Doors open 1745, Event finishes at 1930hrs.
