“Ecobuild has been the number one event for the built environment for over 14 years, with change and innovation always at the heart. It connects and inspires the entire built environment specification chain.”
Following the success of the Waste Zone at Ecobuild back in 2013 BBM have been invited back to curate the WasteZone at this years event which starts today.
The WasteZone will help you navigate a route away from our current take, make, throw away society towards intelligent closed loop systems where waste is seen as food for either an organic natural ‘bio-sphere’ or the humanmade ‘tech-sphere’.
The WasteZone is a temporary place dedicated to the discussion of the issues & huge potentials of seeing waste as a valuable resource, not a problem. Come and hear talks by experts from worlds as diverse as resource management, cutting-edge design & architecture, politics, product and systems design, as well as a new generation of forward thinking suppliers, urban miners, up-cyclers, hackers and material bankers.
The WasteZone discussions will be supported by an inspirational exhibition of the products, materials and buildings, as well as new digital platforms and films, which are enabling an emergent circular economy and proving “that there is no such thing as waste, just stuff in the wrong place”.
Duncan and Ian will both be running several of the discussions, click here for full details of the programme.
