CLOSING THE LOOP, the world’s first feature-length documentary film on the circular economy. Going “circular” refers to the necessary change from our current take-make-waste linear economy to a borrow-use-return circular economy (sometimes also referred to as the zero-waste or cradle-to-cradle economy) that benefits the environment.
The film is directed by A two-time Telly® Award and Emmy® Award winning filmmaker Graham Sheldon and presented by global sustainability expert, Prof. Dr Wayne Visser. And despite its dire warnings – John Elkington, famous for coining the “triple bottom line” of sustainability says in the film: “if we continue with the linear economy if we’re to use a technical term totally screwed” – it is an optimistic film about innovative solutions.
Co-hosted by Hamilton-Burlington KAIROS and IDEA Burlington at East Plains United Church. Doors open for mingling and refreshments at 7pm. Film starts at 7:30pm.
Join our co-hosts the following Saturday for a book study.
