The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is an independent charity with the aim of inspiring a generation to re-think, re-design & build a positive future through the vision of a circular economy. Ellen MacArthur founded the Foundation to better understand how on land too we rely on finite resources in the form of materials, energy and water after her experiences as a world class sailor having sailed over 26,000 miles to become the fastest person to circumnavigate the globe single-handed.
The Circular Economy 100 is a global platform bringing together leading companies, emerging innovators and regions to accelerate the transition to a circular economy over a 1000-day (3 year) period. The Annual Summit was held Wednesday 19 June 2013.

Hear from the some of the book’s contributors - Sara Sozzani Maino - Head of Vogue Talents, Lorna Hall - Director of Fashion Intelligence, WGSN, Eshita Kabra-Davies - Founder, By Rotation and Patrick McDowell, Designer, as they explore circular design within their work.
