Welsh Area Autumn Forum Going Full Circle - Water's Role In A Circular Economy

Welcome all to the 2017 Welsh Area Autumn Forum, an exciting event focussing on the link between the water industry and the circular economy.

 

This topical discussion will highlight the increasing importance of a circular economy within the world we live in today. The day will cover environmental, economic and scientific aspects which all feed into the water industry’s role within the circular economy. The importance of data and its influence in creating and developing a circular economy will also be discussed throughout the day, with a mixture of presentations and workshops, and many great speakers.
