Real Ideas Jam: Business Solutions for a Sustainable Christmas

25th September 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Are you frustrated by the amount of waste that starts to fill your house around Christmas time? Does it annoy you that delivery drivers clog up our roads with thousands of boxes from all over the world, stuffed with plastic padding? Are you someone who makes things which are commonly sent as gifts and you want to reduce the amount of rubbish that is a by-product of your labour? If so, then we want your input: come to the first RIO Ideas Jam on September 25th at Ocean Studios.

The Ideas Jam is part of our Business Support Programme; the idea is that within the two-hour session, people will come together to generate business ideas to tackle gift-related waste.

No idea is off the table. We want hear from you and any thoughts you have about how to make gifting more sustainable. They can relate to packaging, transport, local purchasing, supply chains; in fact, anything that prevents the spectacular waste we see so often leading up to Christmas.

This event is not just for people that have or want to start businesses around the theme, but for anyone interested or passionate about it.

This event will be from 3:00-5:00pm, with the café bar remaining open afterwards for anyone who wants to continue discussions.
