Back to the lecture halls with CIRCL College Tour! In this program you will learn everything about themes that are relevant for the transition to a sustainable, circular economy. Each month we invite an expert, professor or visionary to give a lecture about the scientific developments of the future.
In this edition: Wayne Visser
Prof. Dr. Wayne Visser is a globally recognized Cambridge “pracademic”, author of 41 books – including most recently the bestselling Thriving: The Breakthrough Movement to Regenerate Nature, Society, and the Economy. He has more than 30 years of experience working on sustainable business, which has taken him to 77 countries, with roles at Capgemini, KPMG, Cambridge University, Antwerp Management School and Kaleidoscope Futures Lab.
In this episode of CIRCL College Tour, Dr. Wayne Visser will argue that we need to go beyond sustainability to a net positive ambition for thriving. He will describe the 6 great transitions from breakdown to breakthrough to achieve thriving in nature, society and the economy – including, from depletion to renewal of resources through the circular economy. He will explain the underlying scientific principles of thriving and then outline the 6 steps of integrated value management, which is how companies are implementing thriving.

“Thriving is a brilliant and comprehensive overview of the burgeoning movement to regenerate our land, products, forests, cities, and society. Wayne’s infectious optimism is borne from the possibilities that are emerging when people fully embrace the ecological and social crises we face and human imagination aligns with the life of the planet.”
—Paul Hawken, author of Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation
