SUMMIT 21

What is Summit 21?

This free online event explores how we collaborate to connect government and industry to tackle our biggest global challenges while creating resilience and wellbeing.

Watch and find out how the circular economy gives us the tools to tackle climate change and biodiversity loss, with the power to grow prosperity.

This year is about transformation

Transformation: noun. a complete change in someone or something

What will it take to transform our throwaway economy into one where waste is eliminated, resources are circulated, and nature is regenerated?

The circular economy is a transformation of the system, one that gives us tools to tackle climate change and biodiversity loss together, while addressing important social needs. It gives us the power to grow prosperity, jobs, and resilience while cutting greenhouse gas emissions, waste, and pollution.

This Summit will explore the changes this transformation will take, and how we can work together to create them.

You never change things by fighting against the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.
[Buckminster Fuller]
Three days. Three sessions.
One big idea.

Shifting the system

Thursday 10th June @ 12:00 GMT+1

The circular economy is a bigger idea than simply switching one material for another, or recycling better – it’s about creating interconnected solutions to meet interconnected challenges, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution.
