Join us for the first of our Circular Office workshops in Manchester. This is an opportunity to come together with like-minded organisations to explore opportunities, learn and share, and try out new ideas towards greater circularity in your offices.

The workshop will give you an opportunity to

  • Learn more about the Circular Office initiative and how you can participate
  • Hear from BITC's Circular Economy Taskforce (including JLL, Unilever, PwC, Ricoh, Interface and Arup), about the work they are involved in from changing how they source, recycle and dispose of office goods (including food, paper, plastic, office furniture, textiles and electronics) to looking at the design of new offices and engaging employees in behaviour change
  • Discuss initial ideas for action within their own organisation
  • Explore opportunities for collaborative action within Manchester

The key aim of the workshop is for delegates to leave with a better understanding of what they might do within their own offices and how to go about doing it. Time will be spent in small groups where delegates will share ideas and get advice from circular office experts and peers.
