Circular@Home Challenge + Conversation
Circular@Home is a week-long challenge to inspire action on Climate Change
About this Event
Just what is the Circular Economy and what does it mean for the choices you make at home to support combating climate change?
As part of the Reading Climate Festival, a week-long programme of free events to inspire action on climate change, the Circular Economy Club Reading will be running a week long Circular@Home Challenge to help individuals and families, learn about, take action and share steps they can take on their journey to decreasing waste and looking at sustainable resource use, in our homes and out and about in our daily lives.
We’ll be sharing tips that shift from less take, use and discard of stuff and materials, to exploring our relationship with things, rethinking, reducing, reusing, renting, repairing and recycling!
From Monday to Friday we will have a different circular theme with some short and simple, to more longer term actions you can take to build more circularity into your life (and work).
The week will culminate on Friday 13th October with an online session at 10am.

A chance to take Circular Action at Home and as a Community!
What is the Reading Circular Economy Club (CEC)?
We are part of the Circular Economy Club, a global network of over 3,500 circular economy professionals and organisations in over 100 countries changing the way our cities operate. Our aim is to use Circular Economy models, design and thinking as innovation drivers to reduce waste and rethink products, business and behaviours, creating new and wider value for our community.
We act as a platform to amplify local initiatives and create new opportunities, bringing businesses, government, individuals and academic together.
We want to be brave, innovative, thoughtful and impactful.
We aim to meet every other month for an interactive, hands-on and fun event where ideas are shared and actions agreed to “put” Reading on the map of Circular Economy.
