MAVERICK MONDAYS: CIRCULAR ECONOMY




MAVERICK MONDAYS: CIRCULAR ECONOMY


Monday 13th January 2020, Soho House Greek Street


Maverick Mondays, parts 3, looks at “circular economy”, a response to our current, “linear” system of production, which is based on a “take-make-waste” model by proposing a new “make-use-return” system, which is closed-loop (that is, circular and therefore the opposite of linear). Is it possible to run a profitable zero-waste business? We explore this prospect by focusing on the food sector, one of the most wasteful industries as well as look beyond, into regenerative agriculture practices that aim to reverse climate change by restoring degraded soil biodiversity. Lida Hujić, our resident cool innovation expert, is joined by Charles Pelletier, founder of Liberté Chérie fine épicerie, the zero waste delicatessen, Randy Rampersad, founder of the Green Vic, dubbed as the “world’s most ethical pub”, which includes a zero to landfill policy, and Jean-Charles Guinot, cities engagement manager, food initiatives, from the Ellen McArthur Foundation.


Maverick Mondays series brings to life Lida Hujić’s new book The 2.5%: small group, big influence, which was presented to and approved by a jam-packed room of members before its publication.
