At the first major exhibition to take place since Brexit and the change of leadership at DEFRA, RWM 2016 in Birmingham, 13 – 15 September, promises to deliver engaging debate and discussion of crucial issues at the highest level.
All eyes will be on this year’s Circular Economy Connect theatre when senior leaders across the four nations come together to debate the UK’s vision for a circular economy. The session will be chaired by environmental journalist, Maxine Perella, and she will be joined by Gabriella Pieraccini, Head of Zero Waste (Scottish Government), Shaun Gallagher, Director at DEFRA (Northern Ireland), Andy Rees, Head of waste Strategy Branch (Welsh Government) and John Quinn, Chief Executive Officer at arc21 (England).
They will be discussing the plausible reality of cross-nation harmonisation and how waste strategies across the nations could complement each other. They will also be looking ahead at how the UK can engage with Europe in order to drive a circular economy strategy nationally. Discussion will explore the what the next big policy interventions are likely to be at national level, and how these can help build a competitive economy for the UK’s resource agenda.
Maxine Perella, session chair said “ Since waste policy was devolved in 1999, national strategies have developed at different paces across the UK. This debate will provide a timely assessment of progress to date and highlight some of the future challenges and opportunities facing policy-makers, given current negotiations around Brexit and the future role of the UK on the world stage.”
The debate will take place on Tuesday 13th September, 14:20 – 15:00, in the Circular Economy Connect theatre and is open to all delegates.
