Ellen MacArthur Foundation: Circular Economies with Nick Jeffries 


Nick Jeffries is an environmental engineer by profession, a woodland creator by hobby and currently working as a story-teller for the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. In this session, Nick will share with the Camp Bestival audience his 7-year journey around the Circular Economy. Who knows where Nick's guided tour might take you? An ancient Sumerian poem on the origins of beer? The shortcomings of Joseph Bazalgette's sewage system? How a shadowy cartel of light-bulb manufacturers invented planned obsolescence? A Stella MacArtney leather handbag? (spoiler - the leather is not from a cow)? Or the benefits of tapping into 3.8 billion years of nature's R&D? All of these questions are connected by the central idea of the Circular Economy - an economic transformation sweeping across the world that eliminates waste, circulates resources and regenerates nature. Come and and get positive about the future!
