Training and skill development for a circular economy
About the event
Transitioning to the circular economy could create 450,000 British jobs by 2035. From remanufacturing and repair to reuse and recycling, the opportunities in this ever-growing sector are endless.
But what do businesses, local governments and training and education providers need to do to enable individuals to take advantage of these opportunities? In this session, we heard from industry experts about the skills required to achieve a greener, more prosperous and more inclusive future.
