Symposium: Sharing the Burden of Supermarket Food Waste. Towards Sustainability and a Circular Economy?

Wednesday 27th June 2018,
Oastler Building, University of Huddersfield
Symposium Chairs: Dr John Lever, Dr Fiona Cheetham and Prof. Morven McEachern

This one-day symposium is hosted by SURGE’s Sustainable & Resilient Communities research group in Huddersfield Business School. The conference aims to bring together NGOs, business and academics interested in the area of food waste and the circular economy. The circular economy is gaining momentum and is seen by some as solving the issues created by our ‘traditional’ linear economy (take, make, use, dispose… with waste and pollution at every stage). This symposium will explore how, to what extent, and in what ways donations of food waste helps to address the challenges posed by sustainability and the notion of a circular economy. 

In addition to keynote speakers from Global Feedback and leading circular economy consultant Catherine Weetman, the symposium features a Q&A panel and a workshop around circular economy principles and rethinking the business model, product design and materials used.

Lunch/refreshments are provided throughout the day.

Get involved and join the online conversation using #foodwaste and #sustainfoodwaste
