Circular Economy . Skills and ethics for a new normality

The world population is growing and this is affecting the environment. To ensure there’s enough food, water and prosperity in 2050, we need to switch from a linear to a circular economy. It's not only about recycling, is about spreading a new normality.

About the Conference

In a circular economy, manufacturers design products to be reusable. For example, electrical devices are designed in such a way that they are easier to repair. Products and raw materials are also reused as much as possible. For example, by recycling plastic into pellets for making new plastic products. In a circular economy, we treat our surroundings responsibly. For example, by preventing litter on streets or in the natural environment. The emerging circular economy (CE) paradigm is expected to transform the relationships between ecological and economic systems. This paradigm argues for an economic system in which reductions in resource use and the mitigation of environmental impacts play a dominant role. To plan for a reduction in resource use, a radically different organisation of production and consumption patterns is required. 

It is not just a matter of recycling plastic bottles before they create plastic islands in the oceans, but instead questioning the need and value of bottled water and soft drinks on our tables; it is not a matter of promoting reuse and recycle loops for fast-fashion items, but rather questioning the way we design and use products from the textile industry; it is not just a matter of improving the recycling of e-waste and avoiding its illegal export to Global South countries, but rather questioning production patterns driven by planned obsolescence and devising responsible innovation dynamics.

Some multinational corporations provide the reach and influence necessary to catalyze change on a large scale. But there is another group to play its part — small and midsize businesses. Where do they sit now in the process towards a circular economy? Who and how can make the circular economy the new normality?
