Event Recording, Dreaming of Circular Futures

Virtual Event

October 6, 2023 | 12-1:30 PM EDT | Zoom

Dreaming of Circular Futures, led by Maintainers Movement Fellow Jennah Jones, explored the potential of urban mining and landfill mining as viable alternatives to material extraction. We will discuss the similarities and differences of these two approaches on the basis of accessibility, scalability, and environmental justice; and ponder what considerations will need to be made to embrace an economy that prioritizes repair and reuse, especially as climatic events pose a mounting threat to infrastructure and housing availability.
