Last weekend Connor Bryant spoke alongside Sir Jonathan Porritt (CBE), Professor Nitya Rao, Dr. Hayley Pinto, and Professor Tim O’Riordan on a panel at Norwich Science Festival.
The focus of the event was sustainability. Which in its broad sense covers all environmental issues. Not solely climate change, but the management of resources, living in harmony with the natural world, and much more. The concept of the circular economy revolves around cycles, and the ability to sustain resources and emissions, which cannot be achieved without radical change.
Connors talk focused on the radical change and the disruptive future that is required to shift us away from the damaging and well-documented unsustainable path we are leading.
It is #sustainability #pioneers such as Jonathon, and to give her the credit she deserves, my mother, Julia Hailes, that have paved the way for my generation to take up the mantle and given us a fighting chance. I will be forever grateful for the work done by the pioneers of green, and it is an honour to have the opportunity to work alongside them.Connor Bryant, CEO The Rubbish Project
