Talk and discussion on Consumer Culture, Circular Economy and Repair Cafes, by Steve Privett and John Pearce of the Farnham Repair Cafe.  Since 2015, Farnham Repair Cafe has saved over 22 tonnes of CO2 and diverted over 2 tonnes of materials from landfill.  The circular economy closes material loops through better design and more efficient use of resources, avoiding built-in obsolescence.  The talk will include an overview of the work of repair cafes in the UK (there are nearly 100).
