Circular Economy at Dialogue Café 0 Reply

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.

We are glad to announce that Dialogue Café Association and Garion Consulting Group signed yesterday, 7 June 2018, in Lisbon (Portugal), a cooperation agreement aimed at establishing a network of Dialogue Cafés in countries of East and Southeast Asia, such as South-Korea, Cambodia, China, Myanmar and Vietnam.

In this framework a pilot programme of several sessions focused on the Sustainable Development Goals will be organised before 2019.

Garion Consulting Group has a large experience on implementing education programmes through CISCO Telepresence system in cooperation with national authorities and international organisations such as UNDP.

Through this partnership both we, both parties, aim at promoting intercultural dialogue at the global level. We both believe these kinds of conversations can empower individuals and communities, break down prejudice and misconceptions and promote greater understanding and co-operation across cultures.
