What does "circularity" mean? What are the benefits of a circular economy? All of this and more will be answered during the movie night organised at the Fashion for Good Museum.
The new documentary ‘Going Circular’ unlocks the secrets to an innovative concept called circularity -- an economic system that eliminates waste and saves the planet’s resources. The film tells the story of four visionaries from around the world - 102-year-old inventor Dr. James Lovelock, biomimicry biologist Janine Benyus, designer Arthur Huang, and financier John Fullerton - whose extraordinary experiences changed the way they think about humanity’s future. Each of their stories leads them to a fundamental reassessment of what our food, our cities, our financial system, even our fashion industry could look like if we create, produce, and distribute within Earth's natural boundaries.
Afterwards, we will talk to the organisation behind the movie, Circle Economy. Camilla Visconti en Patricia Coelho (consultants of Circle Economy) discuss the importance of the movie Going Circular. Moreover, Ellen Windemuth, the executive producer of the documentary (from Off the Fence - known for My octopus teacher) shares more about the process behind the scenes and her biggest insights after producing the movie. Lastly, Fashion for Goods Director of Strategy Brittany Burns, who is the moderator of the panel talk, gives more insights about the current and future fashion-innovation and -circularity.
