Thursday 03 March 2022 to Friday 04 March 2022

For the 4th consecutive year, we are working in partnership with Onassis Stegi to explore the issue of the circular economy in the fields of design, fashion, architecture, entrepreneurship and city interventions through the lens of waste recovery.

How can we rethink and, more importantly, redesign our world so that we can have environmental justice, produce and use sustainable technologies, and develop the resilience that our era demands?

At an event that includes participants from all over the world, interactive face-to-face and digital workshops, and synergies with organisations, companies and collectives from Greece and abroad, we will establish the basic parameters of the issue and seek applied and applicable best practices in our daily lives.

The full programme will be announced soon.

About Circular Cultures

Circular Cultures is a new British Council sustainable design and creative economies programme in EU Europe, which aims to promote greater awareness around sustainable design, circularity and making cultures. It aims to embed a more critical dialogue around design and circularity, develop the skills and knowledge of creative leaders, and create new EU networks around sustainability and circularity.

In Greece, Circular Cultures is organised in collaboration with Onassis Stegi and is an integral part of the broader collaboration between the British Council and the Onassis Foundation aimed at the development of an ongoing and action-oriented public space for ethical crafts, circular design, materials and fashion sustainability.

Circular Cultures is part of the British Council global programme Making Matters, which aims to foster a global dialogue around the topic of circular design. The multi-disciplinary programme explores how principles of the circular economy can be a catalyst for creativity, collaboration and regenerative thinking within architecture, design and fashion practice.
