The Role of Paper in the International Economy

Home » What's On » The Role of Paper in the International Economy

16th October 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Location: Kingston University

What role does paper play – in creative and professional practice and the international economy?

Kingston University is pleased to present an event on the role paper plays in the international economy by a widely-acknowledged sector expert. Berry Wiersum is CEO of Sappi Europe (since 2007), one of the world’s leading paper manufacturers and suppliers.

Mr Wiersum’s international outlook has been appreciated by Kingston students through annual masterclasses on the role of paper within the publishing industry. This year, due both to popular demand and the particular value of his international overview, we are opening up the event to a wider audience: within the publishing industry, to members of key professional and business representative organisations and those involved in the sourcing and managing of paper within their professional roles.

Invited guests and students will come together to hear his broad understanding and predictions for our shared future.

The seminar, on Wednesday 16th October, from 4-6pm will include:

  • Presentation by Mr Wiersum

  • Opportunity for questions

  • Display of relevant work from students of the Kingston School of Art

  • Wine reception
