With the aim of reducing waste and avoiding pollution, circular economy promotes greater resource productivity as well as being restorative and regenerative by design. In contrast to the linear economy based on ‘take, make, dispose’ model of production, the circular model builds economic, natural and social capital by relying on system-wide innovation, and redefining products and services to design waste out, while minimising negative impacts. The circular economy offers an opportunity to reinvent our economy, making it more sustainable and competitive as well as bringing benefits for businesses, industries, and citizens alike.
In this framework, it is important to define and implement strategies at the International, national and local level in order to deliver ambitious measures to cut resource use, reduce waste and boost recycling.
With the objective of disseminating circular economy strategies and iniciatives, Dialogue Caf√© network is organising a Conference on “Circular Economy” on 6 June 2017 from 15h to 17h London time.¬†
During this conference, special speakers based in √Čvora, Lisbon and Rio de Janeiro will be invited to address the main challenges for the development of circular economy strategies and share successful experiences on the implementation of initiatives at the local level so that, young entrepreneurs aimed at developing sustainable initiatives will be better informed, have access to knowledge and experience mutual learning.
