This event is a collaboration between Holonic, the enkel collective and a mash-up of Holochain Perth and Circular Economy Perth (WA) meetups... *** Have you heard about the Circular Economy? It's starting to take off in Australia and across the globe. This Plastic Free July we're talking distributed ledger technology to accelerate the transition from 'linear' to 'circular'. The Circular Economy is emerging across Australia and now finally in our own backyard! It's a new framework for an economy where we design out waste, keep products and materials in use and regenerate natural systems. Led by the Ellen Macarthur Foundation, it's driving innovation and positive economic development globally and will help to tackle wicked problems like climate change and scarcity of resources. The building blocks of a Circular Economy include: - Circular Economy design - New business models - Reverse cycles - Enablers and favourable systems conditions This event will include presentations and a panel discussion on the Circular Economy and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) - especially Holochain - followed by Q&A and networking. Come learn about these two exciting topics and find out what's happening in WA. Let's all be a part of creating a better, more circular future. ____________________________________________________________________ Presenters: # Andy Thomson, who holds a Circular Economy MBA, is a Systemic Designer and founder of Holonic.
