Citizens in cities worldwide will sit down next March to watch the Closing the Loop documentary on the circular economy.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker, Graham Sheldon, and co-produced and presented by internationally renowned sustainability expert, Professor Wayne Visser, it was first released earlier this year on Earth Day. Now, to reach a wider audience, and ultimately share the warnings and potential solutions featured, the Circular Economy Club, which has a presence in more than 100 countries, has joined forces with the filmmakers to promote and help organise screenings in your city, or one near you, between March 4-10, 2019.
“The CEC’s global screening of ‘Closing the Loop’ aims to raise awareness worldwide,” said Anna Tarí, CEC Founder. “It’s through the evocative medium of film that we hope to inspire and educate audiences globally, and invite everyone to join the circular revolution.”
Inspired partly by a desire to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and none more so than number 12 on Responsible Consumption and Production, the documentary looks at five key strategies for transitioning to circularity: reduce, reuse, recycle, renew and reinvent. A mix of ideas and perspectives are provided by experts representing organisations and institutions, including the World Economic Forum and the Universities of Cambridge and Harvard.
“The circular economy is only a real solution if it is an inclusive solution for everyone, everywhere. That is one of the key messages of ‘Closing the Loop,’ and that is also why we are so delighted to be partnering with the Circular Economy Club, with its bottom-up approaches and the powerful global network of advocates. Together, we can and must spread the message widely to make the world circular,” added Professor Visser.
