Non-Chamber event: Plastics, Sirens and Declarations - all in a Circular Economy

Non-Chamber event


Before the bedlam of Festival, Fringe and everything else that Brighton has to offer in May, join us on Wednesday 1st May for your monthly fix of all things “circular”:

  • Hear from NHS nurse Harriet, who set up Harriet’s of Hove plastic-free shop last year with her partner, alongside their “day jobs” in healthcare. She’ll talk about her relationship with plastic in healthcare and food and about helping people see what they can do.

  • Share your thoughts for a circular economy Declaration. We are supporting Brighton & Hove City Council to create a circular economy framework, and, alongside that, we want to work with local people and organisations to create a Declaration which will unite us all behind actions to support change. We’ll present our latest thoughts and get some group discussions going to get your input.

  • To get you in the mood for the Festival, be entertained with a wonderful mix of singing and comedy with a (slightly tenuous) link to Circular Economy via marine plastics: “Swimming all the way from New York, Shirley is here today to state her case for herself and her fellow fishy friends on how things need to change with plastic in the waters. Life in the open seas ain’t what it used to be when she was a tadpole, so she is looking for like-minded land folk who will listen to her siren call.
