How does a circular economy contribute to the climate crisis and ecological crisis? What else is needed to tackle the global issues? Which prime sectors and actors will help implementing the transition that is needed so much? How is the Netherlands doing in terms of sustainable action and policy making and what can we learn from other countries? What can banks do? What can public institutions like water authorities do?
We will start the day with a discussion between Dr. Giuseppe Feola, Associate Professor of Social Change for Sustainability in the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development at Utrecht University, the Netherlands, and Marc de Witt (strategic alliances, Circle Economy) on their vision on which reset we need for a futureproof society.
Circle Economy has brought out its global GAP report in January, in which they monitor the global progress in bridging the circularity gap. In this event, Marc de Witt will give an inside in the key leverages for change. Besides, he will explain how circularity can contribute to fight global warming.
After presenting these findings, we will start a debate with Dutch pioneers on how they take leadership in the shift towards a circular economy and on what dilemma’s they are facing to reach their goals.
