Join us for an online panel debate on circular economy. We explore what steps to take to make the circular economy a unifying force for sustainability despite internal quarrels and differing views

For this talk, we bring together a panel of experts, decision-makers, and practitioners, each representing different positions and perspectives on the circular economy.

During the talk, we will delve into the responsibilities of each stakeholder group in advancing the circular agenda, examining how stakeholders potentially constrain each other and how we can cultivate more vital collaboration in pursuit of sustainable transition.

The event builds on our article with the same title, Debunking Misconceptions on Circular Economy.

What you get

We hope to inspire, inform, and, not least, build understanding and set a shared direction.

We aim to reach some ‘non-negotiables’ for the circular economy, i.e., measurements that everyone across the panel agrees must be met for the circular economy to achieve its promise of decoupling economic growth from environmental degradation.

Who should join

You should sign up if you work with the circular economy in any way – from a policy perspective, private or public company, industry, or academia.
