Closing the Loop: Film Screening

You’re invited to a private screening of Closing the Loop: A Documentary About The Circular Economy Revolution

In partnership with Hutt City Council and generously sponsored by Metal Art/Replas, come along and hear from prominent Wellington businesses front-footing efforts to accelerate the Circular Economy followed by a screening of Closing the Loop.

Going “circular” refers to the necessary change from our current take-make-waste linear economy, to a borrow-use-return circular economy (sometimes also referred to as the zero-waste or cradle-to-cradle economy).

The film is directed by A two-time Telly® Award and Emmy® Award winning filmmaker Graham Sheldon and is presented by global sustainability expert, Prof. Dr Wayne Visser.

In support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the documentary explores five key strategies for achieving circularity – reduce, reuse, recycle, renew and reinvent. Five examples from Europe, Latin America and Africa are showcased and feature insights from experts from the World Economic Forum and the Universities of Cambridge and Harvard.

“Unless we go to Circular it’s game over for the planet; it’s game over for society”
