2018 Summit returns to the Roundhouse, London - registration now open

May 18, 2018
Event Summit

Thursday 21st June 2018 will see the Ellen MacArthur Foundation return to the iconic Roundhouse in London to host its sixth Summit, welcoming guests from across the Foundation’s network of business, academia, government and media.

This year, we ask: how do we reinvent the systems of today, so that they are fit for tomorrow? As scientific and technological inventions open up spaces previously limited to art and fiction, we are presented with untold challenges and possibilities. In order to build a future we can thrive in, we need compelling contemporary visions and radical approaches to reach them.

Through a mix of storytelling, conversation, and exhibition, Summit 2018 explores how the digital revolution can make the circular economy a reality. Featuring pioneers that are disrupting the current system from within, our ultimate question is: what are the narratives and practices that will guide the innovators who are reshaping the world around us?

As with last year, limited tickets are now available for the final public session of 2018 Summit which runs from 17:45 - 19:00 BST – Reframing Perspectives: Stories about the future and where they take us, with Ellen MacArthur, Azeem Azhar author of The Exponential View, Zaid Hassan of Roller Strategies and Ellen MacArthur Foundation CEO, Andrew Morlet.
