100 Years of Innovation in the City of 1000 Trades: How Will We Reach a Circular Economy in the Next Century?

Wednesday 24th April 2004 – 09:00 – 12:30

Even in the toughest of times, Birmingham continues to innovate and adapt, building on the city’s legacy and embracing change for the future.

At STEAMhouse, we believe that current innovators must make sustainability and circularity a central pillar of their purpose to make a difference for generations to come. But what does that mean for you? From the clothes on your back, to the roof over your head, an increased focus on circularity is having an increasing impact on our day to day lives but as individuals, we can only do so much. It’s on businesses and leaders to make the right considerations that will ensure the next 100 years in the city of 1,000 trades are as innovative as the last… if not more!

As part of the event, we’re bringing businesses and leaders together and will hear from leading minds already taking the steps to implement ground-breaking sustainability practices in their respective industries for an informative and engaging panel discussion and interrogation on what we can do to accelerate our journey towards a more sustainable and circular economy.

The panel will be followed by a fireside chat with some of STEAMhouse’s very own innovators discussing the impact of our sustainable choices.

This workshop will feature regular breaks designed for networking and refreshment, as well as the chance to ask our panel any burning questions you may have.

Don’t miss this opportunity to gain a sneak peek at what the future holds!

Who is this event for?
