CIWM Circular Economy Knowledge Exchange Webinar between Ireland & Wales

December 10, 2021 @ 11:00 am 12:30 pm GMT

CIWM Cymru Wales Centre & CIWM Republic of Ireland Centre are co- hosting a Circular Economy Knowledge Exchange between Ireland & Wales. See details below.

Despite being separated by 50 miles of sea Ireland and Wales have many things in common and are connected in different ways from our language and legends to our culture and creativity. Whilst the links between Ireland and Wales are long established both countries continue to look at new ways of cooperating and learning from each other with the waste management and resource efficiency industry no different.

In common with each other both countries have their sights determinedly set on a sustainable future, this event looks at the journey, taking place on both sides of the Irish sea as each country realise their ambitions to create a circular economy

Delegates attending the webinar will hear snapshots from eight different speakers (four from Ireland and four from Wales) representing the public, private and not for profit sectors. Each speaker will highlight how their organisations are taking action to deliver sustainable solutions in their own countries, improving the economic, social, environmental, and cultural well-being of their citizens in accordance with circular economy principles.

You’ll hear from:

  • Phillip Nugent, Assistant Secretary leading the Natural Resources and Waste Policy function at the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications.
  • Dr Geraldine Brennan, CIRCULÉIRE’s Programme Manager,
  • David Tobin, Renewable Energy Director,  Beauparc.
  • Claire Downey, CRNI Executive
