Reuse Within & Between Organisations: Warp It Regional Workshops

Warp It admin, Events

Making Reuse Mainstream

Our aim is to make reuse repair and redistribution of surplus assets, furniture and equipment mainstream in organisations.

Our objective is to give you the tools and tips to help you do that in your organisation.

We are delivering a series of regional workshops to do just that.

We know you are busy and we know it is very hard to get away from work, so we are going to squeeze a lot into these 4 hour sessions. 

We have 15-20 minute slots where you will hear from procurement, waste, facilities management and sustainability experts  talking about their reuse journey and how they have overcome barriers.

We will split these presentations up with breakout sessions, where you will meet and work with colleagues from other organisations who are also streamlining reuse. 

We will also be stimulating innovation. Exploring issues and problems you face at work in order to make reuse better and to develop new services to help you get what you need to get done. 

Mark Shayler from This is Ape will be hosting the majority of innovation sessions. Check out what he has to say here.

The topics are vast and the things you can learn will be amazing (if you are into increasing organisational reuse or increasing your impact at work!).

Here is just a peak at some of the subjects we will explore. 

"Senior buy is the most effective action to deliver reuse- 5 ways to get senior buy in"

"We've always done it this way!" How to turn an objection into a desire.

"15 actions the procurement department can do to stimulate reuse". 

"Innovations idea generator".

"Inter agency collaboration. How to collaborate across your city and region to maximise reuse". 

The objectives of the workshops are

  • Help stakeholders across the region to collaborate with each other to maximise reuse internally and externally. 
  • Share experiences of barriers and solutions to help  to maximise reuse.
  • Develop new solutions to the issues you face at work around reuse and other areas of common concern.
