The Circular Cambridge Festival, UK


Circular Cambridge presents The True Cost

Saturday, November 12, 12pm
Wesley Methodist Church, Christ's Pieces, Cambridge
FREE and open to the public
Post-screening facilitated discussion

The True Cost
is a thought provoking documentary film looking at the cost of fast fashion on people and the environment with commentary on the role of mass media and consumerism. Followed by a short facilitated discussion.

The Circular Cambridge Festival seeks to keep the conversation going about climate change by reconsidering our throwaway culture and changing our relationship with stuff. 40% of global climate emissions arise from the items we consume. We passionately believe that we need to move from a linear take - use - dispose model to a circular one. A model in which the value of everything is maximised, where the goods of today become the resources of tomorrow, and where we understand that when it comes to throwing away, there is no 'away'.  In this new model, we would access many of the things we want by renting, sharing and exchanging rather than owning.

Come to the Festival and experience the circular economy for yourself. Hear from one of the UK's leading environmentalists, enjoy a climate themed piano suite, get your broken gadget fixed at a Repair Cafe, enjoy a free film festival (organised by Pivotal), try a tandem or electric bike, enjoy a story from the Cambridge Bard, swap some clothes at a swish, meditate, contribute to an art piece and get circular updates from our city's big institutions like Addenbrookes and the University. In addition there will be stalls, a speakers corner, bike-powered short films and a chance to see again the powerful Whole Earth display that was on Parker's Piece last year.
