Parliamentary launch: The RSA's 'The Great Recovery'

The APDIG, in conjunction with both the Associate Parliamentary Sustainable Resource Group and the Associate Parliamentary Manufacturing Group, held a reception in Parliament to launch the first report of the RSA's ‘Great Recovery’ project. The project, launched in September 2012 by the Action and Research Centre at the RSA, seeks to focus on how designers, manufacturers, materials experts, consumers and policy makers can address the challenge of designing products that can be more easily dismantled and environmentally efficient. This report covers the first 6 months of the Great Recovery project, including the circular network, workshops, and teardown observations. Through this we have gained a better understanding of what action and research is required to transform the way society manages resources, and this report outlines a series of key recommendations based on the findings of the first phase of The Great Recovery programme. Read more about the report and download it here
