Huddersfield Business School, Oastler Building OA7/29, University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, HD1 3DH, United Kingdom

This one-day symposium is hosted by SURGE’s Sustainable & Resilient Communities research group ( in Huddersfield Business School. The conference aims to bring together NGOs, business and academics interested in the area of food waste and the circular economy. The circular economy is gaining momentum and is seen by some as solving the issues created by our ‘traditional’ linear economy (take, make, use, dispose... with waste and pollution at every stage). This symposium will explore how, to what extent, and in what ways donations of food waste helps to address the challenges posed by sustainability and the notion of a circular economy.

In addition to keynote speakers Lucy Antal, Global Feedback and leading circular economy consultant Catherine Weetman, the symposium features a Q&A panel and a workshop around circular economy principles and rethinking the business model, product design and materials used.
