As Senior Project Advisor and founding member of Circular Glasgow, a Glasgow Chamber of Commerce initiative, Rebecca champions and facilitates a movement for change around circular economy principles in the urban economy; with the aim of informing and engaging change-makers. Her focus is on connecting businesses, public sector and local government with one another, strengthening the local SME community, and capturing new ideas that will accelerate their transition to new circular models.
Rebecca believes the role of storing telling and sharing practical applications of circular models will be crucial in supporting Glasgow's ambition of positioning itself as a leading circular city.
