The circular economy is rapidly gaining the attention of businesses, government and the next generation as a framework for re-thinking and designing the future economy. Join us on 19 June 2014 to debate this topic and address a number of challenging questions: - Can a circular economy really decouple growth from resource constraints? - Is the so-called resource crunch really happening or in reality do we still have an abundance of materials and energy? - Is achieving a restorative, circular economy even possible within today's financial operating system?
