Following the recent release of UKGBC’s research into the value of implementing a circular economy and its positive reception from our members, UKGBC’s work on circularity is going from strength to strength. One of its key drivers, the Circular Economy Forum, brings together industry professionals who are actively working on the implementation of circularity to share learnings, find solutions, and make practical progress in implementing circular economy principles on live projects. Before the forum’s next meeting, UKGBC is sharing the opportunity for members to apply to join this dynamic, evolving group.  

You will join a group of highly passionate individuals for quarterly meetings which are designed to be a confidential space to learn from each other’s experiences, successes as well as failures. You will also have the option of joining the member-led working group to address identified challenges and develop solutions. As a group they produce articles for UKGBC’s blog, work together to plan events and contribute towards UKGBC reports. How do members of the forum feel it helps them? Steve Gilchrist at Grosvenor, reflects on the role of the forum on his work: 

“UKGBC’s Circular Economy Forum gives the members and I a valuable opportunity to share ideas and pool resource, so that we can move ideas forward. In the Working Groups we focus on specific topics, digging into the detail with the aim to share our findings with the wider industry. It’s great to work with others in the industry who I’m not connected with through projects, and to be able to help the industry progress.”

We encourage applicants from businesses and organisations across the built environment to ensure a diverse range of views and perspectives in the forum. These include investors, developers, contractors, engineers, architects, planners, academic researchers, government bodies and NGOs.  

Access the  Call for Applications document below for more information on the objectives, time commitment, and how to apply.

Apply by 8th September in order to join the next Forum meeting. Applications can also be made throughout the year.
