A free half-day training course with a focus on the Circular Economy, is being held in Stirling on Tuesday 1 October 2019. The event has been specifically developed for Educators by City of Glasgow College and Glasgow Caledonian University, together with Zero Waste Scotland.
The event is aimed at lecturers and educators directly involved in construction, with the purpose of building knowledge and capacity around Circular Economy, and what this will mean for the construction industry.
Attendees will learn about the concepts and principles of Circular Economy, how they apply to the construction sector and how waste can be minimized by applying these principles from the early stages of a build process. Best practice case studies from around Scotland and the wider construction sector will be shared. Additionally, there will be discussion about how these principles can be introduced into the construction curriculum. Participants will be provided with information that will help them to deliver this topical subject to students.
A vegetarian networking lunch will be provided at the end of the workshop. The event is being held at: Zero Waste Scotland, 2a Forthside Way, Stirling, FK8 1QZ.
